New Peanut Shelling Plant Planned for Georgia

Tuesday, November 30th, 2021

“We are extremely excited about this project and the opportunities it will provide for economic growth in Southwest Georgia,” said Jeremy Mayes, general manager of American Peanut Growers Ingredients. “Per capita, peanut consumption has risen to an all-time high for the second year in a row, which presents an ideal situation allowing us to further drive value through the industry’s supply chain. We are thankful for our farmer-owners demonstrating their willingness to invest in the project and community. Likewise, the support of city and county officials, as well as local industries such as LMC has allowed us to move quickly on our infrastructure needs.”

APGG said it plans to build an additional 135,000-square-foot facility on its campus. The expansion will include new food processing operations, enabling APGG to manufacture peanut paste, granules, peanut butter, and roasted peanuts for its customers. The company also will invest in additional shelling equipment as it expands those operations.
