MATAKANA NUT BUTTERS
Matakana nut butters is a small family business located in the Whangaripo valley, just over the hill from Matakana village. In 2008 they started selling their classic dark roasted peanut butter at the Matakana farmers market, realising that people loved the taste and the health benefits of freshly made nut butters they decided to extend their range and now offer more than 10 different flavour combos. Fresh is best is definitely the Matakana nut butters motto, on most Saturdays you will be buying nut butter that was made less than 48 hours ago, if not 24! Because they batch roast every week, they are always happy to help you out with custom orders, No salt, extra chilli (my favourite) or an extra dark velvety roast.
Matakana nut butters have their priorities straight - healthy local food that tastes great, feeding families with natural fresh wholefoods. They believe you are what you eat so all their products are naturally gluten free, use no additives or preservatives, GMO free, provide a vast range of minerals, vitamins and antioxidants and most importantly taste amazing!

Wild Rimurimu was formed as a product of conscience. After watching the 2040 documentary and being astounded at the benefits of Rimurimu (the Maori word for seaweed), founder Josie Jackson was initially interested in seaweed due to its positive environmental impact, seaweed farms pull down carbon from the air, provide breeding grounds for our fish and help calm the acidification of the oceans, so many positives from a plant that requires no land, no fresh water, pesticides or fertilisers. Josie soon realised the health benefits for humans were pretty amazing too and set out to create Wild Rimurimu. Their locally sourced North island Kelp contains 46 minerals and 11 different types of vitamins, improves your body's PH levels, aids the bodies detoxification process, contains high levels of iodine - critical for thyroid health, helps lower cholesterol and has numerous other health benefits. It's all about supporting local with Wild Rimurimu every ingredient in their products is 100% New Zealand grown from their North Island Kelp, central plateau Horopito, Kerikeri citrus and Calandula from right here in Matakana.
