Industry Analysis

Artisan nut spreads are an exciting category for a few reasons. Maybe most important is the long runway of increased awareness and consumption for the product that already has a global market size of $3.5 billion. As more people find out there’s more to butters than just Peter Pan, growth is going to happen.

But just because there’s increased consumption, doesn’t mean breaking into this industry will be easy. Established players like Justin’s Peanut Butter, Santa Cruz Organic, and other established brands like Smucker’s Natural Peanut Butter are already entrenched in grocery stores. These recognized brands with measurable sales will have a much easier time securing grocery store space than you will.

According to publicly available industry research and interviews with founders, the main channel you’ll want to focus your efforts on is breaking into retail… specifically natural grocers if you plan to sell an organic or natural product. There are over 3,500 grocery stores in the United States that sell natural or gourmet foods so you should be able to find one nearby.

Getting into natural grocers is one of the best ways to generate early awareness and sales for your product. One approach to get into these stores that we always recommend contacting the buyer and offer to do in-store demonstrations offering customers free samples.

In-store taste tests is one of the best ways to move product as an unknown brand. It’s also a fantastic opportunity to get feedback on flavor ideas and meet customers too. Learn how to make a sell sheet and approach retail accounts here. 

Other important channels include direct-to-consumer through e-commerce / social media and Amazon. These are free marketing channels to get started on and essential if you plan to launch a brand in 2020 and beyond.
