Dedicated to Quality

Located next to our production facility, our Research and Development Department is composed of talented food safety experts and lab technicians who work together to create unique, out-of-the-box inclusions for our customers.


A Multi-Tiered Approach

Your food and beverage inclusions should represent the pinnacle of taste and quality without sacrificing safety. To strike this balance, the Pecan Deluxe R&D team is constantly exploring new, innovative ways to use best-in-class raw materials, equipment, and packaging technologies born from advancements in chemistry, microbiology, nutrition, and engineering.


Researched, Customized, and Compliant

You benefit by getting custom, research-backed samples faster, and quicker commercialization of your final product, which means you stay ahead of the competition. We enjoy having our customers work onsite with us to provide real-time feedback throughout the development process, and our team looks forward to enthusiastically tackling even the most challenging projects.
