U.S. Peanuts should – and must – be part of a sustainable future
Peanut farmers protect the land for a living and must make a living themselves. Meanwhile, food and environmental sustainability is being demanded by our customers, consumers, governments and trade partners. The Sustainable U.S. Peanuts Initiative unites these goals.
With growers’ help, we can tell peanut’s sustainability story – and bring those stories to life with real-world information and examples.
Growers: Help us tell your story, get real value in return
To talk up growers’ sustainability record, we need you to share information about your practices and production. In return, we will give you back business intelligence that can help you continuously improve your sustainability practices – and grow your business.
Industry led, industry fed
The Sustainable U.S. Peanuts Initiative comes from and is led by the U.S. peanut industry. It is fueled by data from growers across the United States who want to tell their sustainability story – and who want to benefit from what they can learn in the process.
