The Vermont Peanut Butter Company was founded of three parts to create our ultimate mission.. The first was to provide a quality, locally made and crafted product that is free of harmful preservatives, hydrogenated oils, GMO's , palm fruit oils, excess sugar and salt. A product that tastes great in the morning, for lunch or a snack anytime of the day. The second part is that of social responsibility and community support. Our social responsibility exists by standing behind healthful and nutritious products, which can make for a healthier life and family well being.
We will never deviate from our wholesome 100% goodness. Our social responsibility also incurs a firm stand in the community through support of important local and national events, and continuous donations to charity. The third part was to create fun and deliciousness to a product that is in 9 out of 10 homes. VTPB is a premium nut butter brand with a good old fashioned, grass roots feel. We grind, mix, fill, cap, seal, label and ship 100% of our products from Morrisville Vermont...home of success story #1...Ben and Jerry's. We look forward to growing our Vermont company here, creating jobs and providing a fun look and feel to Vermonts next famous food. Heck, I guess being the #2 success story won't be so bad.
...It was on a hike one day in the idyllic Mountains I adore....I was starving! I craved peanut butter, but was thinking how great it would be to add some flavor and EXTRA PROTEIN. After eating a handful of nuts and raisins, my beloved pb&j for the one thousanth time, AND consuming yet another run of the mill nutrition bar high in sugar, high in price and low in satisfaction, my idea became reality.
Whammo...In my small creative kitchen, under the watchful eye of my six year old, together we created TEN DIFFERENT nut butters that will absolutely have you saying "oh my goodness"! They can even become a household staple food. We use only the best USA GROWN flavorful nuts, and all natural ingredients, leaving out the sugar, trans fats, gluten, and preservatives. As a matter of fact we use two different strands of peanuts, and have them roasted to two different darknesses, creating our proprietary flavor. We use a proprietary blend of peanuts in every peanut butter product. Now that is revolutionary! We make only very controlled SMALL BATCHES to ensure unmatched safety and detail. No aspect of our manufacturing is outsourced, and we are proud to grind, fill, cap, seal, label and ship everything from our plant in Morrisville VT! All of our flavored peanut butters have added whey protein and some have CHOCOLATE, some have Vermont MAPLE SYRUP, some have cranberries, FLAX and honey. We even have the very best creamy and mega chunky peanut butter in the business.
This is an unbeatable food source for NUTRITION, and fun for your FAMILY or for any ATHLETE. Our ingredients are simple to read, good for your body, yummy on the palate and settling to your soul. Never hydrogenation, never palm oils, never preservatives, and never excess salt or sugar! We hope you enjoy every sandwich, snack and even spoonful of our peanut butters and almond butters. We sincerely APPRECIATE your SUPPORT. Be healthy, be active and eat our peanut butter! Nobody's is more delicious or better for you.
NOTE FROM CHRIS KAISER - FOUNDER and PRESIDENT
Hello, My name is Chris Kaiser. I am the Founder and President of The Vermont Peanut Butter Company, Inc. I am a huge advocate for the Green Mountains of Vermont, snow, nature, healthy living, exercise and family. I have long been dedicated to grass roots ventures, athletics and a healthy outdoor lifestyle. I am a mountain and athlete visionary guy with big ideas, lots of energy, and extensive financial planning background with a real concern for the types of foods we are made to believe are good for you. It is unaccptable to me that hydrogenation, palm oil, corn syrup and sugar is in so many things we feed ourselves, and our kids. If you look at some products that say "All Natural", they still add palm oils, excess sugar and sodium. COMPLETELY against everything I stand for. I take great pride in creating a one of a kind food that is free of these oils, preservatives and households now across the country love having it in their kitchens. Nut butters are not new, but Vermont Peanut Butter Company's creations will prove to be the best ever!
I was awarded a Division I. Baseball Scholarship for baseball powerhouse Coastal Carolina University,performed professional Strength and Conditioning Instruction for the Baltimore Orioles, owned my own financial planning firm,I backcountry snowboard, mountain bike, ski patrol and kayak to raise money for cancer on ocassion. My next adventure and fututre for my family, is bringing fun and nutritionally sound peanut butters to you and your family. I am building another famous Vermont food company, with help from so many of you who truly care about what you eat. Together we are are putting "Vermont" in homes around the world.
As Vermont Peanut Butter grows, I want to be involved with many organizations. My current dedication to the Vermont Mountain Biking scene, local lacrosse organizations, food banks and the American Cancer Society, and the High Fives Foundation are just a few. My love for mountain biking, the mountains and my big heart for kids will surely lead me to pair up with Vermont's finest and this country's strongest. If you think we may make a good addition to your event, organization or idea...let me know.
I am looking forward to meeting you, thanks for the support!
