These are the peanuts you were expecting.
After all, we’ve used these golden Hi Oleic peanut religiously since our arrival to your supermarket shelves almost a decade ago.
We’ve met the farmers, stood on their fields for harvest, and in their factories for processing - we’ve shared their stories with you; and their recent hardships.
Australia let us know last year that their supply would be dwindling for the foreseeable future - an accumulation of droughts and flooding meant that lots of our guys have moved on to less fragile crops for the short-while.
It’s not forever.
These guys have been growing peanuts for generations, and all know of their importance to you, our peanut butter lovers.
They’ll get back to it and in turn by us still being around,
their peanuts will get back to you, too.
It may not be in 100% capacity like you’re used to.
But we’ve found ridiculously wonderful people growing superb peanuts from all over the world that we'd like to share with you.
Australia has recently faced heavier hardships- and has started processing Argentine peanuts for us at their factory in Queensland to fill in their short supply.
This means for the short while we will be receiving bags of both Australian and Argentine peanuts.
The Argentine nuts are the same variety, and flavour profile of their Australian counterparts which are grown in similar climates, with similar methods- and the same stringent quality control at PCA.
By purchasing these, we are supporting the Australian growers to get back on track.
I haven’t written a story about the Argentine growers as this measure is temporary.
