Why Meridian? At Meridian Foods they pride themselves on being the tastiest, natural nut butter brand in the world who also happens to care about the planet.
But why is that? Well it’s not because they’re jumping on the bandwagon that’s for sure, on the contrary, they’ve been doing things this way – the best way – since they began, and that’s for one simple reason;good tastes better!
They never use palm oil!
They don't use palm oil in any of their natural butters, just 100% nuts or seeds, or their ranges of fruit spreads, cooking sauces or home baking essentials.
They're delighted to announce they are the first, and only, UK nut butter brand to achieve Palm Oil Free certification from POFCAP. They have so far gained accreditation for 55 products and will ensure all future products are accredited.
Their decision to certify is to help remove any confusion for you. Most nut butters sold in the UK still contain palm oil or palm oil derivatives with many not even clearly labelled (palm oil is sometimes used in stabilisers like E471). Even some products which claim 'sustainable' palm oil may have used purchased credits rather than actually containing sustainably sourced ingredients.
They simply don't believe that you need to use palm oil to create delicious natural nut butters.So they don't, ever!
