From Georgia To China

20110813_WBP005_0.jpgThe Economist recently published an interesting article about Georgia Chopsticks, a business based in Americus, GA that manufactures chopsticks and exports them to China. Georgia Chopsticks makes the chopsticks using "poplar and sweet-gum trees, which have the requisite flexibility and toughness, and are abundant throughout Georgia." The plant is currently shipping the unfinished chopsticks to China via The Port of Savannah and has plans to expand its client base to Korea and Japan by the end of the year.
