Hi, I’m Chris Paulk. I am President and CEO of Muscadine Products Corporation (MPC), Paulk Vineyards’ processing sister company. Our juices, jellies, and dietary supplements are sold under the Paulk’s Pride banner. My personal mission is to glorify God by being a great steward of all that is entrusted to me. Corporately, we help others add value to what matters most. And, locally, I serve to help help build healthier families.
MPC was born out of my grandfather’s vision to add value to his own and others’ health by creating healthy products from the muscadine juices, skins, and seeds. My wife, Jorjanne, and I moved back in 2002 after graduating from Georgia Tech to start this business in what was my great-grandfather’s chicken house. Today, MPC employs eight people and operates a production facility of over 25,000 square feet in the middle of our fifth-generation farm.
We are proud to help others add value to what matters most. We’ve worked with some of the largest and innovative brands in the dietary supplement and natural marketplace. You can find our products online and in retailers in Georgia.
Locally, I serve on the Irwin County Board of Commissioners. I also serve as Chair of Irwin County Hospital Authority. I am a member of the Ocilla Rotary Club. I serve on Irwin Electric Membership Cooperative’s Foundation Board, and I serve on the board of Connect Missions. I am also a member of Satilla Baptist Church, where I lead our middle-school ministry, among serving in other capacities.
I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Jorjanne, for sixteen years. We have two sons and live in the middle of my family’s vineyard in rural Irwin County, Georgia.
