WASHINGTON – U.S. Senators David Perdue, R-Ga., and Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., applauded Senate passage of a resolution they introduced recognizing the 100th anniversary of the American Peanut Shellers Association, which is headquartered in Albany, Ga.

“As the number one peanut-producing state, Georgia is responsible for nearly half of all peanut production in the United States,” said Perdue. “For more than 100 years, the American Peanut Shellers Association has worked to advocate for peanut farmers and promote the peanut industry across the country and around the world. Senator Isakson and I are proud to recognize this organization and thank all of Georgia’s farmers and producers for feeding the world.”

“I’m proud to congratulate the Peanut Shellers Association on 100 years of leadership in the industry and thank them for their work in Georgia to aid the industry and help share our quality peanuts with the world,” said Isakson. “As my staff knows well, you can’t travel with me across South Georgia without stopping by the side of the road for some boiled peanuts.”

The Senate resolution recognizes the American Peanut Shellers Association for its effective leadership in the peanut industry and praises the work of the peanut industry in Georgia and across the country.
