Sourcing the best nuts
Nuts and peanuts are some of the most nutritionally rich crops grown on the planet. They’ve been planted, nurtured and harvested around the world for thousands of years, from Europe, to Asia, and the Americas.
We source top-quality ingredients from all five continents, and regularly visit our suppliers and their farms to ensure that nothing but care goes into creating the best raw ingredients for our products.
And it’s not just nuts we work with! With an eye for creating fun and interesting snack products, we source a host of other fabulous ingredients to enhance our nuts. From dried fruits to fruit jellies, and from herbs and spices to chocolate drops and honey, we maintain the same rigorous standards across all of our ingredients to offer you the very best products.
Roasting to perfection
We love the delicious flavour and crunch of a well roasted nut, but peanuts and nuts are a natural crop and different varieties, origins and growing conditions can lead to a great deal of variation. So we count heavily on the skills and experience of our processing team to deliver consistently delicious products for our customers to enjoy.
And with over 70 years nut-roasting experience we know precisely how to roast nuts at the right temperature and for just the right amount of time to deliver the flavour and crunch we all savour.
Adding a little flavour and variety
Nuts are the perfect foil for punchy flavours, and with consumer tastes ever-changing, our innovation team works hard to keep ahead of trends. They’re always looking for exciting new tastes and flavours to enhance our nuts. So whether you prefer classic salted peanuts, the moreish flavour of a dry roasted nut, something with a spicy kick, or even a little sweetness in your snacking, you’re sure to find something you love in our range.
Our quality bespoke flavours have all been carefully developed to enhance the nuts without overpowering their natural flavour.
We love to mix-and-match our nuts with other ingredients to create exciting new combinations to keep your taste buds tingling. Nuts go well with a variety of different textures and flavours, bringing excitement and innovation to your snacking.
Spreading a little nut joy
The versatility of nuts and peanuts knows no bounds, and the same is true for peanut and nut butters. Sweet or savoury. Smooth or crunchy. Peanut, single nut, or mixed with other ingredients. There are plenty of variations on this classic American food cupboard staple, and with an increase in customers looking for healthy snacking options, Sun Valley is keen to offer new and exciting nut butter products.
Whether they’re used for dipping, spreading or making your favourite satay recipe, all of our nut butters are made with care and attention, combining innovation and quality with a desire to create delicious products that will keep you coming back for more.
Quality at our heart
At Sun Valley, we love nuts, and we can’t get enough of creating delicious products for our consumers. From sourcing raw materials to delivering the finished article to your door, quality is at the heart of everything we do.
