One of the recent developments in the peanut butter market was due to an unusually poor peanut harvest this year. ConAgra will raise the price of its Peter Pan Peanut butter by 20%. Kraft will be raising the price of its Planters peanut butter by 40%. This may affect sales for better because ConAgra is raising its prices less than other manufacturers.
