About-the-PBCThe Peanut Bureau of Canada was established in 1999 as the Canadian information office of the American Peanut Council, a non-profit trade association that serves as a forum for all segments of the U.S. peanut industry including peanut growers, shellers, brokers, peanut product manufacturers and suppliers of goods and services to the industry.

The Peanut Bureau of Canada is dedicated to promoting the great taste and health benefits of quality USA-grown peanuts.
