Meridian Foods update – 15.00pm Thursday 26th March.
We are currently experiencing exceptionally high demand for our products and because of this have had to take the extremely tough decision to temporarily close our store while we catch up with orders in our system. Any orders placed before 3pm on Thursday 26th March will still be delivered as soon as possible but please bear with us during this time.
We plan to open again soon and will keep you updated here and on our social media pages.
Sorry for the inconvenience caused and please stay safe and stay at home where possible.
We are delighted to announce we are the first, and only, UK nut butter brand to achieve Palm Oil free certification from POFCAP. We have so far gained accreditation for 51 products and will ensure all future products are accredited.
We never use any Palm Oil in our nut butters, only 100% nuts.
Our decision to certify is to help remove any confusion for you. Most nut butters sold in the UK still contain palm oil and palm oil derivatives with many derivatives not even clearly labelled, e.g. Palm oil is sometimes used in E471 stabiliser. Even some products which claim 'sustainable' palm oil may have purchased credits rather than contain actual sustainably grown palm oil.
We believe that you do not need to use Palm Oil to create delicious natural nut butters. So we don't, ever!
Certifying means every ingredient in our certified products have been thoroughly researched and tested palm oil and palm oil derivative free - we're beyond excited to include this trademark on our labels, making choice and identification easier for you when purchasing Palm Oil Free products!
