Description


Join Butterbelle’s founder and chief food technologist, Zoe Harrison, for a master class in preparing and creating your own nut and seed butters.

Founded in 2015, by Shropshire Mum of two, Zoe Harrison, Butterbelle’s all natural nut and seed products are fast becoming a firm staple in every health-conscious consumer’s cupboard.

With the vegan and free-from market growing exponentially of late, Zoe is seeing huge demand not only for her products but also for her health, wellbeing and nutritional expertise.

Zoe founded Butterbelle whilst she was studying for her degree in Food Science and Nutrition at Harper Adams University, Shropshire, which explored the relationship between food, nutrition and human health and applied this to the food manufacturing industry covering areas such as food policy, ethics and law, advanced aspects of human nutrition, microbiology and food safety, food security and sustainable food production and public health nutrition.

Always interested in health, wellbeing and leading an active lifestyle, Zoe loved using nut butters to produce wholesome, nutritionally dense meals for her family but struggled to find products that didn’t contain unnecessary sugar and palm oil and so decided to develop her own. Incorporating what she was learning from her Food Science degree - in which she graduated with first class honours - combined with her passions of yoga and the ancient holistic practice of Ayurveda, Zoe set to work on developing a nutritious product range to suit the growing health and wellbeing market.

Extensive research was undertaken to include the most nutritious, high quality and healthy ingredients for her new nut butters. Packed only in glass jars to complement Zoe’s love for the environment, the nutritious natural nut butters are flavoured with powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory ingredients such as cinnamon, raw cacao and ginger and contain no emulsifiers, refined sugar or palm oil.

Once the product range had been developed, Zoe then combined her final year of study with running her fledgling business, carrying out research into attitudes towards the environmental impact of packaging for her Honours Research Project. Following this, Zoe ran a recycling campaign, giving away free seeds with every purchase to encourage the re-use of her jars as seed starters.

Zoe now sells her nutritious and wholesome products at food festivals, artisan food markets and vegan fairs all over the country, with her two daughters - or baby-belles - Stevie and Lara.

Butterbelle products are also on sale in the Yumbles online market and independent retailers as well as being used by many chefs. In addition to this, Zoe also takes part in demonstrations and talks about plant based nutrition and the benefits of including nuts and seeds in the diet.
