Southern Peanut Farmers' Federation
The latest organization that GPC was instrumental in forming was the Southern Peanut Farmers' Federation. Formed in 1998, SPFF was established to allow southeastern peanut producers to speak with a unified voice. Often, particularly in Washington, state representatives are asked the position of other southeastern states on policy issues. In order to avoid follow-up from each state, a position by the SPFF has become a position of all three states. It has, also become an umbrella for other activities and projects, besides promotion, that the three organizations undertake collectively.
SPFF is comprised of the Alabama Peanut Producers Association, the Florida Peanut Producers Association, the Georgia Peanut Commission and the Mississippi Peanut Growers Association. These are the respective "check-off" organizations in each state. The SPFF board consist of 8 members comprised of the chief elected officer and the executive director of each organization.
