Virginia   Belmont Peanuts will create fifteen jobs

Belmont Peanuts of Southampton will invest over $2.5 million to build a new peanut processing, warehousing, and retail facility prominently located along Highway 58, Virginia.


As a result of this expansion, Belmont Peanuts will create fifteen new jobs, grow their purchases of Virginia-grown peanuts by 30 percent and create a new tourism destination for Southampton County.

Belmont Peanuts, a family-owned and -operated company, was founded in 1993 as a small mail order business and has grown to a thriving peanut processing operation that sells a wide variety of savory, spiced, and dessert-flavored gourmet peanuts through direct sales to customers and retail chains across the United States.

Belmont Peanuts is owned by the Marks family, who have been growing peanuts in Southampton County for generations. Many of the top quality peanuts that the family grows are used in their products.

The company’s new facility will allow for increased production, improved efficiency and the ability to achieve even higher food safety certifications.

The retail store will feature the entire array of Belmont Peanuts goods, along with sandwiches and other prepared foods featuring these products. This new facility will open up space at the company’s current location, allowing them to install a new chocolate enrobing operation for their signature line of chocolate-covered peanut products.
