Pic’s Peanut Butter, New Zealand’s #1 Peanut Butter Now Available in U.S. Pic (AKA “Bruce”) Picot started producing his own peanut butter brand in 2007 by roasting and crushing imported peanuts, and by leaving out the sugar and emulsifiers that are added to some competing peanut butters. Since boyhood lunches of peanut butter and lettuce sandwiches in Auckland, peanut butter has certainly been a passion for Pic. He ran a sailing school in Nelson before coming ashore to experiment making his own product in the home kitchen. Pic’s passion includes offering taste tests to passers-by wherever he can. For this activity he regularly takes to the road in his distinctive Airstream fitted out as “The Big Toaster” for the “Peanut Butter on Toast” tour. Kids love it! To further their efforts as a responsible manufacturer, Pic’s jar and lid are designed to encourage reuse rather than just recycling. They even have the Really Good Jar Exchange on their Facebook page.
