Every year, Girl Scouts sell millions of boxes of delectable Girl Scout Cookies to raise funds. But what happens before the Girl Scouts deliver those cookies to your door, or sell them in your community. Baking cookies is a fascinating process, especially on the scale it takes to satisfy America’s cravings for Girl Scout Cookies. Ready for a tour?

Girl Scout Cookies get their uniforms.

After cooling, the cookies are lined up, stacked and portioned by weight or count into the appropriate packaging.

In one part of the packaging department, employees sort and tray-pack individual cookies. On another line, employees monitor the high-speed packaging equipment that wraps the majority of our cookies. Sophisticated machines place wrapped cookies into boxes. And down the line, boxes are weighed and put in cases for shipping. The process is fast, smooth, continuous and efficient.

Once in cases, the cookies are arranged on a pallet and shrink-wrapped in giant blocks. These can transport safely and easily to distribution centers, stores and Girl Scout councils.
