6 local peanut butter brands you need to try

A good peanut butter guarantees a great breakfast or snack time. We’re spoilt for choice in New Zealand when it comes to producers of this moreish spread. MiNDFOOD rounds up some of the best brands that you can currently buy around the country.

Forty Thieves 


This healthy food business based in Stanmore Bay crafts tasty nut butters from nutrient-rich ingredients.

Forty Thieves is an environmentally-conscious brand, with each nut butter packaged in glass jars where up to 90 per cent of the glass used has already been recycled.

Nut Brothers


A range of natural nut butter free from preservatives and additives with a variety of tasty flavour combinations.

They have some perfect dessert options, with salted caramel and dark chocolate peanut butter flavours on offer.

Willis and Co


100 per cent natural peanut butter made in New Zealand from hi-oleic double roasted Australian peanuts.

It’s the perfect choice for the peanut butter addict, as they sell 1kg and even 2kg tubs!

Our peanut butter comes with no added oil or added anything in fact, so you may find your crunchy may look a little dry if you’re not eating it fast enough. If this is the case, tap the jar on the bottom with your palm a few times. This will help distribute the oil from the peanuts better. Also, if you have left it in the pantry for a while, it may seperate especially the smooth peanut butter. If that happens, just store it upside down for a day or so and then you will be good to go again. Moral of the story- eat your peanut butter faster 😆 #willisandco #peanutbutter #pb #peanutbutterlovers #peanuts #nutbutter #nutbutterlovers #gonuts #healthy #instafood #healthfood #nzmade #local #aussienuts #instadaily #madeinnz #nzproducts #supportlocal #supportnz #smallbusiness

Island Style

Bay of Plenty

Peanut butter with a tropical twist that’s inspired by the flavours of Fiji, using hi-oleic peanuts that are roasted with pure Fijian coconut oil.

‘The Choc’ is the ultimate treat, thanks to its flecks of toasted coconut and chunks of dark chocolate.

Fix & Fogg


Multi-award-winning nut butter producers that create peanut butter in a variety of interesting flavours such as dark chocolate, coffee and maple, and fruit toast.

You can try their tasty concoctions at the Fix & Fogg window in the heart of Wellington.

Bay Rd


This Dunedin business was started by brothers who wanted to create a top-notch local peanut butter that is healthy, sustainable and tastes great.

For a fresh-tasting product, peanuts are batch roasted and put straight into the grinder. The roaster and grinder are expertly operated by hand.
