Supplier Spotlight time, we are happy to present to you:  Nutcessity.  A Bristol based nut butter brand with a difference.  The founder of Nutcessity has a peanut allergy!  He set about making an alternative range of premium nut based butters to cater for those with similar dietary requirements.

All of the Nutcessity butters are:  Plant-Based, Paleo, Organic, No Gluten, No Peanuts, No Added Oil, Protein Source, High Fibre.

The best person to explain the brand is mike himself…

“When on study exchange in Australia in 2013, I had my first taste of nut butter. It was, without hyperbole, a total revelation. Having been diagnosed with a peanut allergy and being unsure about eating nuts, nut butter wasn’t part of my vocabulary until I started my final year of Uni…

With an International Business degree behind me, and after lots of experimenting, questioning, focus groups & travelling, I eventually started Nutcessity when I came back from working with the voluntary organisation, Raleigh Tanzania, in August 2016.

I wanted my nut butter to be sufficiently different – in flavour, texture and nutritional content. Because I don’t add refined sugar or syrups (and definitely no palm oil), my spreads are only slightly sweet – in a wholesome fashion; whilst their texture is more fudge-like & creamy, depending on the room’s temperature.

From August 2016 to January 2020 I made all my nut butters myself from home (jarring & labelling too!), with the aid of various different blenders. Because of such high demand, I started working with a co-packer in February 2020, who help me with production and keep us with a consistent supply of stock.  I hope you enjoy my nut butter! Mike :D”
