Fix & Fogg
What’s not to love about nut butter?. Not only is it nutritious—most offer a combination of protein, iron, and other nutrients—but it’s super versatile for snacks, quick breakfasts, and even dinner (try adding a spoonful to dressings, soups, or even as a topping for baked sweet potatoes.) Clearly, we’re not the only ones obsessed. In 2017, the global peanut butter market reached an estimated $3 billion, and the American Peanut Council reports that Americans consume more than 6 pounds of peanut products per year (half in butter form). Need more proof? Just take a look at the more than 5.7 million posts tagged #peanutbutter on Instagram.
The History of Fix & Fogg
Roman and Andrea Jewell started Fix & Fogg in Wellington, New Zealand in 2013 when the couple was expecting their first child. The former lawyers decided to leave the corporate world behind in favor of making sustainable and elevated nut butters. Today, their award-winning recipes are now produced solely in the USA. Literature buffs will appreciate that the brand’s unique moniker comes from two characters in Jules Verne’s classic 1873 adventure novel Around the World in 80 Days: Detective Fix and Phileas Fogg.
Fix & Fogg Company Mission
Fix & Fogg is a small team with one simple mission: to make the world’s best nut butter. The brand is proud to be the first New Zealand-owned food manufacturer to be awarded B Corp Certification, and uses quality ingredients (without fillers), supports nonprofits, and pays its employees a living wage.
