Peanuts are our thing

Quite simply, we’re all about nuts. And as a global business, we work with every peanut product imaginable.

Combining technological development with insider knowledge – we push the industry to go further.

From humble origins, the peanut has come a long way.

  • Ancient beginnings
    Ancient beginnings

    The peanut as we know it was born 10,000 years ago in Bolivia, thanks to bees cross-pollinating two wild species. Whilst today’s varieties might be self-pollinating (which is why they are classed as both a legume and a nut), we still pay tribute to the bees that brought us here.

  • Shared with the world

    Both Spanish and Portuguese explorers discovered the versatility of the peanut, and kickstarted the commercial farming era. Global cultivation has since grown rapidly, hitting 44 million tons in 2020, and is expected to scale the heights of 68 million tons by 2050.

    Peanuts aren’t just delicious: they also contain unique bio-chemicals that can help treat ailments including heart disease and cancer. From polyphenol in peanut testa, to selenium in Taiwanese King Kong peanuts, they contain many hidden powers.

  • The food revolution

    As plant-based diets and sustainable practices become increasingly important worldwide, the peanut is truly coming into its own. Second only to soybeans as an efficient source of plant-based protein, peanuts are grown all over the world – and even benefit from a multi-harvest season in India.

A multitude of peanut varieties

Not all peanuts are created equal. Each type has a unique flavour and use, and whilst some take only 90 days to grow, others may take as many as 150 days.

Brush up on your nuts so you can choose the right variety for your business.

Our blanching process is driven by science, and helps manage challenges such as peanut meal, spots, peroxide value, salmonella, and aflatoxin. By removing 95% of the aflatoxin, for example, blanching makes our peanuts safer to consume. Helping us support the growing demand from the snack and food processing industries.

Peanut hulls have a high calorific value, and once pressed into pellets and bricks they’re an excellent bio-fuel source. It’s important to us that we maximise our resource use – and electricity generation is part of that mission.
