About Us

America’s peanut farmers are mothers and fathers…grandmothers and grandfathers…and know how it feels to want to protect those you love most. They never want anyone to be hurt by the wholesome food they grow – a food that millions of families count on every day to deliver affordable nutrition. That’s why, since 2001 through the National Peanut Board, peanut farmers have invested more than $21 million of their own dollars into research and education about food and peanut allergies.

Grower Gayle White and CEO Bob Parker talk about the National Peanut Board’s commitment to food allergy research, education and outreach.
