We’re so used to seeing ‘Made in China’ on so many products we buy in North America that we wonder if the Chinese people ever see a product with a label that states it’s made on this side of the world. Well, they do. On chopsticks, no less.
Georgia Chopsticks, a company based in (aptly-named) Americus, Georgia, produces about four million sets of chopsticks each week, and exports them to China and Japan. Each set comes with a label marked “Made in USA”.
It seems, China and Japan simply don’t have enough wood to produce their own chopsticks, but Georgia does.
Oh, the irony...
