Our Values

We Believe In Peanuts

Sustainable agriculture: America’s peanut farming families take great pride in growing a nutritious and affordable food, while nurturing the land they work and the communities in which they live. They responsibly steward the land to leave a sustainable legacy for future generations.
Wholesome, USA-grown peanuts: Our peanuts are a healthy, plant-based food with more protein than any other nut and more than 30 essential nutrients.
Wellness and fitness: We support healthy eating and good nutrition for people of all ages to get the most out of their lives. We’re also an evidence-based resource for consumers and health professionals.
Food allergy solutions: We’re committed to preventing and managing food allergies. To that end, we’ve devoted more than $21 million to research, outreach and education programs.
Innovation: We champion innovation. US peanut farmers are the most efficient in the world, as a result of our commitment to funding production research. And from retail to foodservice, we inspire creative peanut products and menu items.
Compassion: We’re committed to helping end hunger and provide relief in the U.S. and abroad. Peanut butter in therapeutic meals is saving thousands of lives around the world, and peanut butter is the most requested food by food banks.
Openness: We operate honestly, ethically, fairly and in ways that engender trust among our stakeholders, consumers and the communities we serve.
