Georgia Peaches launch YouTube channel; videos help council connect with consumers

video image2As part of its ongoing promotional and educational program, the Georgia Peach Council has launched a YouTube channel to inform consumers about one of the state’s more popular crops.

The YouTube channel includes videos to introduce consumers to the prominent growers who bring their sweet Georgia peaches to grocery stores, as well as informational segments on how to pick the perfect peach, ways to know if a peach is ripe and why Georgia peaches are so sweet.

“More and more people want to know where their produce comes from and who grows it,” said Will McGehee of the Georgia Peach Council. “These videos will help us better engage and connect to consumers by providing useful tips and information.”

Here’s the first of the Georgia peach videos — find out more by following the council at www.facebook.com/SweetGeorgiaPeaches and www.twitter.com/GAPeachCouncil.
