About peanut butter americano

OUR START, IN A NUTSHELL


Peanut Butter Americano is succeeding in its mission to create the most delicious, nutritious, and socially beneficial nut butters on the planet!


The idea for Peanut Butter Americano (PB Americano) came about while Jeff Malkoon, our Head Nut, was volunteering with TECHO, a non-profit poverty relief agency, in the South American country of Uruguay. Despite the fact that the peanut was first cultivated in that region over 3,000 years ago, Jeff noticed a bizarre incidence that would in turn inspire the idea for an all natural peanut butter. Peanuts grew abundantly in Uruguay, yet children and adults preferred to consume spreads such as dulce de leche, which are much sweeter, but lack in nutritional value. Plain peanut butter was simply not tasty enough.

Was it possible to make a natural peanut butter that was both delicious AND nutritious?

In 2013, a natural peanut butter company with the name Peanut Butter Americano was born in Jeff’s mother’s kitchen after much trial and error, broken equipment, and taste testing. Starting at local farmers markets, we’ve since expanded to represent in over 300 retail locations, including Sprouts, Whole Foods, and specialty grocers. Our product line has grown to include four delightful natural peanut butter flavors and two equally tasty, natural almond butters.

The origins of Peanut Butter Americano were never forgotten. To continue bettering communities, both in the US and in countries across the Americas, we created our Fund for the Americas® initiative. To date, Peanut Butter Americano has contributed more than $13,000 towards economic and community development projects in 19 countries.

We’re thrilled to see what our nutty future holds, and how we can continue to serve taste buds and needs around the world!
