ButtaNutt is a proudly South African nut butter producer that hand-crafts a series of authentic tree nut spreads using local & natural ingredients, with a core focus on Macadamia spreads.
Founder Antoine van Heerden’s school holidays were spent harvesting macadamia nuts on his parent’s farm on the banks of the Sabie River. South Africa is the largest producer of Macadamia nuts in the world, predominantly exporting to China. During Antoine’s final year of Mechanical Engineering at Stellenbosch University, he started roasting, blending and selling over the weekends at a local Slowfood Market. Antoine enrolled for his Masters in 2014 but before the end of the summer, had dropped out to focus on ButtaNutt full time.
