Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves” was the inspiration for naming our nut butters. It’s a tale of an enchanted cave filled with hidden treasure. The cave can only be unlocked with the famous passcode; ‘Open Sesame!’ In our story, the treasures are the nutrients hidden inside nuts and seeds. And when we turn them into nut butters, they’re not just healthy but delicious and versatile too.

Founded in 2016, Forty Thieves has grown from making one box of nut butters in a day (in a blender!) to producing approx. 10,000 jars every week, in our fully operating Hibiscus Coast-based factory. You don’t need to go digging for our award-winning nut butters, you can find them at local supermarkets across Aotearoa New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia and Fiji.

Supervised by our Master Roaster, our nuts are batch-roasted one tonne at a time in our stainless ‘steal’ roasting equipment. From our signature Not-Too-Smooth to award-winning extra Crunchy, we use precision milling to get the grind just right! From green herbs & black pepper to natural caramel, we cleverly mix tasty treasures in, that your tastebuds will love. Bottled up into glass, our finished jars are then wrapped in FSC paper labels on our shiny Italian-made labelling line.
