The UK’s number one nut and seed butter producer, Meridian Foods, is expanding its nut butter offer with two new indulgent cocoa variants this May.
Recognised for its protein-packed, nutrient rich products, the British producer is bringing out its own blend of Cocoa & Peanut and Cocoa & Hazelnut nut butters to meet consumer demand.
The new variants, which are rolling out in Tesco, Ocado and independent health retailers now, are made with no refined sugar or palm oil and offer a healthier alternative for consumers looking to satisfy a chocolate craving.
Darren Robinson, Head of Sales at Meridian Foods, comments: “Typically our products are recognised for their health-boosting attributes, but who doesn’t like a little indulgence now and again, especially if it’s a healthier choice. We are delivering all the health benefits that our customers love – handfuls of roasted nuts, no nasties and no palm oil – blended with cocoa powder, pure coconut and a dash of honey.
“It’s a recipe that we have spent some time perfecting, and we are very confident we’ve got two products our customers will go nuts for, giving families and fitness fans even more reason to enjoy Meridian butters.”
Cocoa & Peanut and Cocoa & Hazelnut will be available in 280g and 170g jars respectively, offering high levels of nuts – 74% peanut in Cocoa & Peanut and 75% hazelnut in Cocoa & Hazelnut – delivering not only on nutty taste, but health attributes that consumers can benefit from. High in magnesium, which supports good skin health, there is also a good level of vitamins and minerals, including Zinc, Iron and Calcium to support a healthier lifestyle.
The brand, which has been making nut butters for over 30 years in Corwen, North Wales, follow a simple recipe using quality ingredients. It launched Peanut Butter with Seeds in January and two new nut bars, Peanut & Coconut and Peanut & Pumpkin in March.
Cocoa & Peanut is available in a 280g jar with an RSP of £2.79, Cocoa & Hazelnut is available in 170g jar, with an RSP of £3.99.
