2011 Sunbelt Ag Expo
During the Sunbelt Ag Expo, the Georgia Peanut Commission celebrated their 50th Anniversary by serving birthday cake every day at the Expo. The commission has been an exhibitor at Expo since its beginning. For the celebration a homemade peanut shaped cake was made with peanut flour by Beverly Reed. She is the wife of peanut farmer and GPC advisory board member David Reed of Pinehurst, Ga. In addition to the cake, attendees were also able to sample cupcakes made with peanut flour. Attendees at the show were also treated to country fried peanuts by GPC, grilled PB&Js by the Peanut Institute and samples of Jif To Go Peanut Butter from the J.M. Smucker Company. Attendees also learned more about peanut flour from the representatives of Protein Plus in Fitzgerald, Ga., the GPC Brick Program for the new headquarters and the Georgia Peanuts race car promotion that was featured on the Speed TV Pass Time show. Peanut queens from Sylvester, Ga. helped serve the cake samples during the celebration.
