ATLANTA, Ga. – Georgia Crafted announced today that their 2017 Flavor of Georgia Gift Box will be available for purchase on November 18 at Amy’s Hallmark Shop in Norcross, Georgia. Amy’s Hallmark Shop discovered the Atlanta gift box business after one of their employees received a Georgia Crafted gift box. The retail chain’s Norcross store partnered with Georgia Crafted to promote local products, specifically the state’s top artisan goods from the 2017 Flavor of Georgia competition hosted by the University of Georgia.
“The University of Georgia’s Flavor of Georgia has been highlighting and promoting the state’s diverse, delicious food products for more than a decade, with over 1,200 total entries and a long list of success stories,” said Sharon P. Kane, Economist and Food Business Development Specialist at the UGA Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development.
“Our participants tell us that the contest provides them with recognition, credibility, and exposure for their products as well as networking with others in the food industry, bringing the potential for improved business operations and new sales opportunities. Our partnership with Georgia Crafted and the popularity of the Flavor of Georgia boxes demonstrate this process in action.”
