    Goals / Remit

    The American Peanut Council (APC) is the trade association which represents all segments of the peanut industry. Members include peanut growers, peanut shellers, brokers, peanut product manufacturers, and suppliers of goods and services to the industry.

    Headquartered in the metropolitan Washington, DC area, the APC monitors developments in the domestic and international markets and responds with a diverse array of domestic and international marketing, trade servicing, food safety, research and issues management programs. The APC maintains close working relationships with government agencies, research institutions and related peanut and agricultural trade associations.

    APC's Mission Statement is to:

    -Provide leadership in issues management
    -Promote the consumption of U.S. peanuts internationally
    -Provide thought leadership, coordination and facilitation in scientific research related to production, handling and processing of peanuts.

    Main EU files targeted

    -Positioning the U.S. as a reliable supplier of premium quality peanuts, ingredients and finished products, with attributes that make them good value (harvesting & storage techniques, food safety procedures, nutrient composition, etc.). The primary target for this work is manufacturers, distributors and retailers who have the market position and potential to expand usage of American peanuts and peanut products.

    -Monitoring and addressing technical issues that threaten trade with the EU. Aflatoxin contamination and pesticide residue levels (MRLs) are the main trade issues that the U.S. peanut industry encounters in Europe. APC actively monitors new developments and regulations on both issues and intervenes when necessary. The organization works with both U.S. and E.U. government officials to make sure that all decisions regarding MRLs and aflatoxin are based on sound scientific data. At the same time, APC will continue to work with international organizations such as Codex to set standardized aflatoxin and MRL tolerances that are achievable by exporters, while still guaranteeing consumer safety.
