National Nut Day 2021

We’re nutty about nuts! Find out more about National Nut Day 2021!

Are you nutty about nuts? Nuts are a great source of protein and a healthy snack to enjoy when you are just grazing. National Nut Day is observed this year on the 22nd of October 2021. This National Day isn’t as old as some others, it was created in 2015 by the Liberations Food Company to highlight the importance of nuts in a person’s diet. It was also created to stress to the public that nuts should be sustainably grown, and that nut farmers need to be given a fair minimum wage.

There are many types of nuts and many are grown all over the world, so it is important for a lot of people know that a Fair Trade collective is established, as this means employees of the farm where your nuts are sourced are being treated and paid fairly for the work they do.

So, why not take the opportunity to celebrate one of your favourite nuts on the 22nd of October! A great way to enjoy a nut is having it in or on a cake or brownie! We have a selection that have nuts – Here's what nutty creations we have available:
