Processing Plants: from peanuts to poultry – some of the largest specialized processing facilities in the southeast

 The National Peanut Buying Points Association seeks to represent America's 350+ buying locations that receive, weigh, clean, dry, inspect, grade and prepare peanuts for storage and shelling. All United States produced peanuts must be inspected by the Federal-State Inspection Service at a registered peanut buying point.

Carolina Peanut a U.S. buying point hired AgValue as an agri-business specialist; the purpose of the valuation was to provide the owners a valuation for all of the buying points owned by the investors. This assignment included the valuation of the real estate, machinery and equipment, rolling stock, as well as the value of the overall business. The portfolio included three locations with near 100,000 tons of peanut capacity.

The professional valuation experts at AgValue have been involved in valuing some of the nation’s leading poultry processing facilities including national companies like Koch Foods and Harrison Poultry, a Georgia based company. AgValue has been responsible for providing value consulting in many other poultry operations. Valuation assignments have included entire portfolios of assets from the feed mill to the processing plant including the hatcheries. These valuations are complex and require experienced experts familiar with vertically integration and the machinery and equipment associated with each processing stage. In addition, AgValue has experience in various other highly specialized processing facilities. One of only two squab processing facilities in the U.S. called upon AgValue for value consulting and included consulting for the allocation of real estate, machinery and equipment, and business value in an inter-company purchase negotiation.
