Update in Peanut Origins
July 23, 2020
Dear Mayver’s family,
I personally wanted to let you know of the changes in the origin of the Peanuts used in our much loved Aussie-made Peanut Butter range.
We will always support our local farmers first and will continue to do so, however, we’ve just bought the last available Aussie peanuts for the season and still need more peanuts to keep up with the demand for our Peanut Butters. The shortage of Australian peanuts is due to the devasting drought in South Queensland which has affected the local farms and suppliers.
To keep up with production we’ve personally travelled across the globe to find the next best peanuts. We think peanuts from Argentina have the most similar flavour and natural purity that our Aussie nuts are famous for. We have made sure that the Argentinian farms and suppliers meet our high standards for sustainable farming practices and, of course, deliver the best tasting peanuts around!
We will continue to monitor the availability of Australian peanuts and have our fingers crossed for a good growing season this summer and we will move back to Australian peanuts as soon as possible.
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 40 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.
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 natural roasted peanuts and a dash of sea salt.
Your support means a lot to all of us. Thank you for supporting our Aussie family brand and enjoying the Peanut Butters that we are proud to make for you.
Managing Director of Mayver’s
