American Blanching Company

American Blanching Company is located in Fitzgerald, Georgia, the heart of the peanut growing belt. It was built as a custom blancher for the peanut industry serving many leading companies as a source of quality cleaned, blanched and sorted peanuts.

Although the management has changed several times, the company has been under its current management since 1990.

Since then, it has evolved into one of the top custom blanching facilities serving the peanut industry. With a blanching capacity of 25,000 pound per hour,

ABC utilizes the latest technological advances in the blanchingindustry from custom designed and built blanchers to state-of-the-art electronic sorters and X-Ray machines.

To further its service to its valued customers, a peanut butter line was added in 1995. Capacity is 12,000 lbs/hr and is equipped with a computer controlled process that monitors formula, temperatures and other control points. ABC is supplying quality peanut butter and paste as an ingredient to the snack food industry. Productapplications include ice cream, candy, chocolate, cookie, confectionery and cracker industries.

In the second half of 2000, we added a high-speed, fully automated peanut butter jar line. This line runs PET jars for private label for domestic and export customers.

As we continued to grow, it was necessary to build another plant adjacent to the original plant in 2002. This plant provides custom roasted peanuts and granulated peanuts to a broad base of customers and applications.

To keep pace with our retail PET jar business, we installed another peanut butter line in Plant 2. This line started production in 2005 and has a capacity of 12,000 lb/hr.
