Update on Peanut Origins- a note from Paul
May 15, 2017
Dear Mayver’s family,
I personally wanted to let you know that in the coming weeks there will be a change in the origin of some of the Peanuts used in our much loved Aussie-made Peanut Butter range.
As a family-owned Australian company, we’re so proud of how far we’ve come. We started as a family looking for healthy alternatives to the food we love to eat and since then have grown to employ over 35 people who all believe in a healthier future for our country. This commitment is represented in every jar of our peanut butter, that is only ever made from the best tasting peanuts around.
And it seems that the rest of Australia agrees with us!
We will always support our local farmers first, however we’ve just bought the last available Aussie peanuts for the season and still need more peanuts to keep up with demand for our Peanut Butters.
The shortage is partially due to recent bad weather conditions and that more and more Australian’s are choosing to buy our locally made Peanut Butters. To keep up with production we’ve personally travelled across the globe to find the next best peanuts in Argentina that have a similar flavour and natural purity that our Aussie nuts are famous for.
Our priority for 2017 is to continue using as many Australian nuts as we can so our Mayver’s Peanut Butters will still maintain at least 50% Australian Grown Peanuts. The remainder of our peanuts will be sourced from Argentinian farms which meet our high standards for sustainable farming practices and, of course, deliver the best tasting Peanut Butter around!
We can assure you that all Mayver’s Peanut Butters are still family-owned and locally made by us right here in Victoria, Australia from nothing but naturally roasted peanuts and a pinch of sea salt, so their delicious famous flavour remains exactly the same.
Your support means a lot to all of us. thank you for supporting our Aussie brand and enjoying the Peanut Butters that we are proud to make for you.
Managing Director of Mayver’s
