HI! I'M SAM.
Inspired by a trip to Hawaii in 2016, my coco-nutty adventure all started when I visited a little condiments making factory on the North Shore. I quickly fell head over heels in love with their best selling product - coconut peanut butter!
The obsession hit me hard and as soon as I was back home in New Zealand I made it my mission to get my hands on more of this liquid gold that I had become quickly addicted to. My dreams of eating the best tasting nut butter of my life were soon dashed when I noticed that shipping alone was going to cost $180 and no one in Kiwi-land was making it. That was until I was encouraged by my closest friends and family to try and create my own version. The good old Kiwi ingenuity soon kicked in and here I am today, with four different variants in 2 sizes selling in markets, online and in a few carefully-selected stores.
Every jar is hand-poured and hand-labelled (by me only) and all my products are unique to the NZ market. I work in the evenings to produce only the best coconut nut butter batches for you all, as I work full time as an administration and marketing assistant for one of the best financial advisory companies in Auckland - Multiply Limited.
During this journey, I came to understand the power of a limited ingredients list, with natural ingredients and no additives. All my butters are sweet in flavour, using coconut flesh instead of sugars, syrups or nectars. I stand by products that promote inner health and wellness while still being kind to the plant which is no exception for my own company.
That's how CocoMaNuts was developed: with a mission for quality, unmistakable natural flavour, and eco-consciousness.
