The African Groundnut Council is a state-level organization designed to promote groundnuts produced in the countries of the Gambia, Mali, Niger, Senegal, the Sudan and Nigeria.

History[edit]

Founded in June 1964, the AGC was based in Lagos, Nigeria, from its founding until 2005, when it moved to Kano. It moved in 2005 due to lobbying by the Groundnut Farmers Association of Nigeria. The first executive secretary of the organization was Jacques Diouf.
