Nuts – Peanuts

Peanuts are a sustainable source of plant-based protein

The humble peanut has become one of the most ubiquitous legume family members. It is no surprise that peanuts are inexpensive, nutritious, and sustainable; an eco-friendly crop that produces an environmentally friendly protein source. 

In food applications, peanuts have proven their versatility through an ability to carry bold seasonings and flavors, especially in snack foods, which have great appeal for Millennial and Gen Z consumers seeking adventure through food. Even among nut butters, peanut butter reigns as the most popular variety, with Americans downing close to 700 million pounds of it every year.

Product integrity vital for snacking peanuts

Peanuts, however, can be a challenging product to transport because they can be easily damaged. Product integrity might not matter as much for nuts ground into peanut butter; however, many other applications in snacking or baking place a premium on product integrity and part identity, leaving a whole or half nut as the desired outcome.

Cablevey Peanut Conveyor Systems are suitable for moving unshelled peanuts, shelled peanuts, dry roasted peanuts, chopped peanuts, peanut powder, and even peanut butter. No matter what form your peanuts are in, we can move your material in a gentle and sanitary manner. Our peanut conveyors can be utilized throughout the peanut processing stream, from initial harvest through roasting, grinding, or packaging. The enclosed tubular conveyor protects peanuts and peanut products until the final processing or packaging step, regardless of distance, height, or desired throughput.
