Bristol Nut Butter Brand Creates Plastic-Free Jarred Trio
Founder Mike Duckworth says, 'I wanted to alter the recipes slightly and make the label a bit brighter and plastic-free'. Now with a paper based label which comes off the jar easily, each Nutcessity jar is now certified plastic-free by A Plastic Planet – the London based non-profit with the goal of 'to ignite and inspire the world to turn off the plastic tap'.
Coming in three slightly sweet flavours: Gingerbread Almond, Date & Walnut and Caromel Cashew, each organic Nutcessity Butter is sweetened only with natural fruit (apricots, dates & carob) and no added sugar or oil (at all). 'They are a little bit different to peanut butter', Mike continues. 'The texture is a bit firmer and less cloying, whilst the flavour is wholesome but with a slight sweetness and salt-edge…'
Having spent the past 3 years getting feedback from customers, Nutcessity is now supplying wholesaler Essential Trading, who will in turn supply shops such as The Real Food Store (Exeter), Southville Deli (Bristol) and Iechyd Da Zero Waste (Whitchurch, Cardiff), amongst many others.
According to The Grocer Magazine, peanut butter is set to overtake Jam as the UK's best selling breakfast spread this year, which makes new nut butter brands' products from Freda's (Cornwall), Butterbike (Devon) and Nutcessity welcome additions to independent stores' shelves.
