APC and the U.S. peanut industry follow and engage in a number of topics and issues ranging from peanut nutrition to international food aid. APC conducts an annual Winter Conference in December and the USA Peanut Congress each June to bring together all industry segments to discuss topics and issues of mutual concern and strategies for the future. In addition, and in cooperation with U.S. and international peanut organizations, APC participates in numerous events and meetings around the world to discuss and address the issues that could impact the peanut industry. Every two years the APC organizes the international Peanut Forum (IPF) which brings together the worldwide peanut industry from many countries to hear presentations and discussions on topics and events affecting the worldwide trade and consumption of peanuts and peanut products. The next IPF is scheduled for April 2012 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
