Peanut Board announces export pilot program

Peanut Board announces export pilot program

The goal of this program is to increase exports of USA-grown peanuts by helping small farmer-owned and other small agri-businesses to develop or increase their peanut exports.

The National Peanut Board (NPB) is pleased to announce the launch of its Export Small Business Pilot Program on June 7, 2011 at NPB’s office in Atlanta.

The goal of this program is to increase exports of USA-grown peanuts by helping small farmer-owned and other small agri-businesses to develop or increase their peanut exports. NPB’s farmer-funded program is committed to helping expand the market for USA-grown peanuts and peanut products, including value-added and specialty products.

“America’s peanut farmers grow a high-quality product that is in great demand beyond U.S. borders,” said NPB President and Managing Director Marie Fenn.

“The National Peanut Board’s Export Small Business Pilot Program responds to the needs of peanut growers and small businesses to succeed internationally. Our program will provide peanut farmers and small business owners with the knowledge and support they need, as well as cost-effective ways to reach international markets and gain a new customer base. All of these efforts support a growing demand for USA-grown peanuts, peanut butter and peanut products.”

The pilot program will work in conjunction with the Southern United States Trade Association (SUSTA), and with other U.S. Trade Association affiliates, to support farmers in participating in export activities. NPB will provide the SUSTA approved small businesses with administrative and marketing support to help generate a global presence for their products.

The one-day seminar will help farmers learn more about NPB’s Export Small Business pilot program and how they can take full advantage of USTA programs. The seminar will include: presentations by SUSTA, NPB and a guest speaker who has used the program successfully, as well as one-on-one meetings with SUSTA.
