A Taste of Success

A Taste of Success

The Fordingbridge-based Nut Butter Company, are celebrating after picking up a Gold Award at the Taste of the West.

It was their Crunchy Peanut butter which impressed the judges who examined over 1,000 food and drink entries from producers based in the South West. Made by husband and wife team, Jason and Linzi, the artisan peanut butter is created by oven roasting nuts in small batches.

Jason commented on the success: “We are very proud of our achievement at the Taste of the West Awards. Our product is relatively new to the market and whilst we know from our loyal customers that they love what they taste it is always reassuring to have the seal of approval from a panel of judges.”

It has been a busy year for The Nut Butter Company, which was featured on a new BBC show ‘Top of the Shop with Tom Kerridge’. This experience gave Jason and Linzi valuable ideas and feedback on how to present their product at events. They have taken this on board as Jason explained: “We are going to try a new concept at the New Forest Show this year, rather than just offering small tasters we will be hosting a toast bar where people can try our nut butters and also other locally sourced toppings. Come and see us there!”

Products from The Nut Butter Company are available to order online and are also stocked at local shops including The Gourmet Grocer and Setley Ridge Garden Centre.
