Five years ago, after working in a natural wholefoods business, Tom Briscoe was ready to branch out and create his own products. He specifically wanted to develop an alternative to Peanut Butter.
The goal was to work with a Tasmanian-grown nut and keep the finished product as close to 100% Tasmanian as possible. Working alongside Tom in design, sales and marketing (and keeping it in the family) is his sister Carly.
Before launching Walnutter, Tom spent a couple of years experimenting with different flavours and learning about the qualities of different ingredients, the best ways to source these ingredients and the manufacturing requirements involved.
Tom’s efforts were always centred around the key elements of creating something wholesome and nutritious using pure ingredients. It was Tom’s goal to “spread the goodness of Tasmania”.
Tom settled on the idea of creating a walnut butter made from 100% Tasmanian grown premium walnuts.
The Walnutter range now includes delicious handcrafted walnut butters - Natural and Honey - as well as cold-pressed walnut oil, walnut flour and organic chocolate walnuts.
