Edible Use of Shelled Kernels Up 4.5%

The June 30 Peanut Stocks and Processing Report by NASS USDA indicates that total use of shelled edible kernels is up 4.5% over last year.  The increase is being driven by the peanut butter category, up 9% over last year.  This is a strong increase and is being credited toward innovative products being introduced in the market.  Candy use is down according to the report snack use about the same.  In-shell use is down which is not encouraging for the Virginia-type market.
