About Us

Rose Musso started Georgia Nut Company in 1945, shortly after World War II.  Her original passion was to sell different roasted nuts and snacks to friends and family.  As Georgia Nut Company grew, Rose was approached by several customers to provide additional offerings including various confections.  Georgia Nut Company found success in this market, and has since grown to become one of the largest privately-held confections and snack companies in North America.  Since 1945, over four generations of Rose’s family have actively managed the business, pouring forth new ideas and driving the entrepreneurial spirit of the company into the future.

Today, Georgia Nut Company is home to a 130,000 square foot food manufacturing facility in Skokie, IL that combines our old-fashioned, small batch methods with state-of-the-art innovations and equipment that continue to drive our company into the future. All products are warehoused and shipped from our 180,000 square foot distribution center in Niles, IL, giving you access to our fine nuts, confections, snacks, and ingredients.

With an efficient balance of research and development, manufacturing, and stringent quality control standards at the heart of all that we do, we are able to guarantee your satisfaction regardless of what products you purchase or manufacturing roles we fulfill for you.

At Georgia Nut Company, our customers are at the heart of everything we do. Our success is driven forward by our commitment to excellence and superior service, allowing us to grow while continuing to provide the high-quality service that our customers are accustomed to.

Our entire Georgia Nut family from technicians, to tasters, shipping associates, and sales managers are grateful for you, our customers, and we consider it an honor to work with you as we continue to grow and innovate for many decades to come.
