twist the lid and open sesame!

“Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves” was the inspiration for naming our nut butters. It’s a tale of an enchanted cave filled with hidden treasure. The cave can only be unlocked with the famous passcode; ‘Open Sesame!’


In our story, the treasures are the nutrients hidden inside nuts and seeds. And when we turn them into nut butters, they’re not just healthy but delicious and versatile too.

Naturally packed for you and our planet.

from hidden treasure to national jewels

Founded in 2016, Forty Thieves has grown from making one box of nut butters in a day (in a blender!) to producing approx. 10,000 jars every week, in our fully operating Hibiscus Coast-based factory.

You don’t need to go digging for our award-winning nut butters, you can find them at local supermarkets across Aotearoa New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia and Fiji.
