Birdsong Peanuts

612 Madison Ave, Suffolk, VA 23434

Birdsong buys carefully selected peanuts directly from the farmers’ fields. They are then cleaned, shelled, sized and shipped in truckload lots to manufacturers who turn them into many popular food items, from peanut butter to peanut candies. If you eat products made from American peanuts, chances are you’ve consumed peanuts from Birdsong.

ESG/Ethical Impact

We at Birdsong realize that our actions as stewards of the earth can help create a better world for generations to come. Everything that we need for survival, both directly and indirectly, depends upon the environment, and so we are committed to charting a sustainable future. Peanuts pack not only a nutritional punch but also an environmentally friendly one as well. For example, a pound of peanut butter produces five times less greenhouse gas emissions than a pound of cheese and producing peanut butter has 10 times fewer emissions than producing beef. Birdsong was among the first in the industry to generate a reliable carbon footprint. The result of this effort was encouraging: Birdsong plant operations generate only one third in carbon emissions when compared to federal and state reporting guidelines. However, electricity usage accounted for the great majority of those emissions, so we saw this as an opportunity for improvement. To meet this opportunity, Birdsong installed a five acre solar arrangement which generates 1.45 million kilowatt hours of energy per year. This reduces greenhouse gas emissions by over 1000 tons per year – the equivalent of removing 197 vehicles from the road. Birdsong supplies over 20,000 tons of peanut hull pellets, a source of renewable energy, to co-generation plants around the world. This produces over 41 million kilowatt hours of electricity. All Birdsong facilities are at or near zero landfill waste operational status. The goal is to have all plant campuses certified zero landfill waste by the end of 2015.
