JULY EVENTS for the Georgia Manufacturing Alliance

Manufacturers and service providers connect and learn best business practices at plant tours and events.

The Georgia Manufacturing community has the opportunity to attend 8 exciting events to connect, educate, and see best business practices first hand at plant tours and events planned for July.

These include:

High Roads Craft Ice Cream (Afternoon Plant Tour) – July 7 – Marietta
Enjoy a guided tour for a behind the scenes look at the ice cream making process. Guests will be able to see their top chefs supervising production and conjuring up ice cream flavors such as Pistachio Honey Ricotta, Bourbon Burnt Sugar, and Vanilla Fleur de Sel — and get sneak previews of brand new flavors before they hit shelves. High Road’s new factory is primed to become both a local attraction for Atlanta-area residents as well as an entertaining and delicious travel destination for ice cream enthusiasts all over the nation.

Savannah Bee (Afternoon Plant Tour) -- July 13th – Savannah
Featured as a “Small Business Success Story” on CNN, attendees will see the retail inventory, web fulfillment department, all the way through the wholesale shipping department for some of the world’s finest honey and beeswax body care products available. See how the honey is filtered in such a way that it remains raw and natural, how the process works, and how the honey travels from the sitting tanks to the bottle. Attendees will also learn about bees, pollination, and how bees help our everyday lives and the environment by visiting an actual Bee Hive.
