The IPF is a two and a half day meeting for the worldwide peanut industry that was held in Rome from the 9th - 11th, April, 2014.  This biennial meeting is the only international meeting devoted entirely to peanuts, and brings together the world peanut industry, including all major producing countries, importers, brokers, dealers, shellers, manufacturers and service providers such as equipment suppliers and laboratories. The meeting typically attracts around 300 industry members from more than 25 countries and provides a nice balance between conference presentations and networking social events.  It is a very cost-effective way to see customers and suppliers in one venue at one time.
