ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany - Dougherty Economic Development Commission took their meeting to yet another location Wednesday. This time it was Sunnyland Farms.

It's all part of their initiative to showcase their 'made in Albany' campaign.  It features local industries each month. After their meeting, members of the commission toured the facility.

Sunnyland Farms is a pecan goods producer, which dates back to 1948.

Their chief operations officer says he's happy the EDC chose Sunnyland this month.

"I think we are a strong business in the community, and I think it's a great opportunity for us and them. We've been doing business in Albany for a long time, and we have some of the greatest employees in the world," said Alex Willson, Sunnyland Farms Chief Operations Officer.   

The EDC has put together hashtag 'Made in Albany' videos that showcase what goes on at some of the industries they visit.
