Selling Ice to Eskimos
A Georgia company that makes chopsticks is not only growing rapidly, but is exporting chopsticks to foreign countries.
Georgia Chopsticks is located in Americus, Georgia, just a couple of hours south of Atlanta. The owner, Jae Lee, said that his company is producing about two million chopsticks a day and is exporting them to China and Japan in huge numbers.
The poplar and gum trees that Lee uses in his chopsticks is popular with overseas and domestic consumers.
Imagine that – selling chopsticks .. to the Chinese.
