Nuts ‘N More started 8 years ago. Peter Ferreira, Founder & CEO, was actively training as a fitness enthusiast and runner, and found himself with a highly regimented diet. He had always been someone who loved food, but due to his fitness training and diet, he no longer looked forward to eating. He grew up in Providence, Rhode Island where his family owned a small bakery turning out amazing tasting treats. Spending time at home only made him crave the cookies, cakes and bars he couldn’t eat even more, and left him feeling bad for depriving myself of the food that I love to eat.
Peter dreaded the thought of eating another protein bar or drinking another shake, and searched for better tasting alternatives for getting more protein into his diet. His way of coping at the time was to eat a spoonful of nut butter for dessert, but it still left him feeling unsatisfied.
That’s when he had the ah-ha moment of creating a protein packed peanut butter that tasted truly amazing. He quickly started testing recipes at his family’s bakery, designing some creative and great tasting flavours. His friends and family couldn’t get enough. Later that year he created the first high protein nut butter spread and launched in market!
With Peter's desire to bring the product to more fitness enthusiasts who love food, he wrote a email to Shark Tank and appeared on the show in 2013 where we successfully raised money from investors Mark Cuban and Robert Herjavec. This helped him expand quickly and successfully. Over time and with much work, Nuts N More have become one of the biggest success stories from Shark Tank!
They are incredibly excited about the opportunity to continue to launch Nuts ‘N More with more customers, and introduce more consumers to our amazing tasting high-protein spreads.
