The National Pecan Shellers Association’s mission is to support and promote the interests of pecan shellers and the global industry to assure the quality, safety and integrity of pecan products worldwide.
Pecans are available for purchase year-round. Look for them at your favorite grocery store, farmer’s market or order online from one of our member companies. You can be sure to receive the very best quality and freshest pecans when you order directly from a pecan sheller company.

The National Pecan Shellers Association represents members of the pecan shelling and processing industry. Its purpose is to serve the best interests of industry members, its customers, and consumers of its products through a governing body of Board of Directors and several committees. The Association represents members in public relations, legislative and regulatory issues. General membership meetings are held twice a year.
Day-to-day administration is managed by Kellen, an employee-owned global professional services and association management company with offices in Atlanta, Beijing, Brussels, Chicago, Denver, Kansas City, New York, and Washington, D.C.
If your company is engaged in the pecan industry as a sheller, broker, accumulator, grower, processor or supplier of goods and services to these companies, you need to be a member of the National Pecan Shellers Association.
