About Pic's Peanut Butter
Visit the home of New Zealand's best loved peanut butter. Smell our freshly roasted nuts as they tumble out of the roaster and make their way to The Peanut Squasher. See Pic's squirting into a jar that wends its way along rattling conveyors to the capping machines that automatically place and tighten Pic's famous star lids, to the labeller, a hi tech licker and placer that wraps the brown paper label around the jar. Watch as our team of white clad peanut butter makers tweak and nurse the gleaming stainless machines into making the world's finest peanut butter, load it into boxes, then wrap it on to pallets to be sent around NZ and around the world. And there's a very good cafe right in the building. Tours are at 10.00am, 11.30am and 1.30pm and the shop is open 8.00 to 4.00, and we are always happy to talk peanuts.

We’ve been on a tour at Pics old peanut butter factory, but were excited to hear that he was having another built. We missed the grand opening because we were out of country. We truly lucked out in getting on a tour in December because...More

Three generations including 2 under 10 loved the tour. Kath Bee was a great guide, fun and informative. The kids loved making the butter and I could have watched the machines all day. And great coffee and donuts after. Will come back again.

Yes. There re two ingredients in Pic’s peanut butter - peanuts and salt. Because there are no fillers there is no gluten. Jesus be praised!
