Did you know there really is a Justin behind this beloved line of nut butters and mouthwatering organic peanut butter cups? Ten years ago, Boulder, Colo., resident Justin Gold was looking for a delicious way to fuel his long bike rides. So he started making his own nut butters and selling them at farmers’ markets in Colorado. It wasn’t long before companies like Whole Foods began to stock his products.
9. The Pressery
Natalie Stajcic and Chi-San Wan created this UK-based brand because they loved the taste of homemade almond milk, and store-bought almond milk with added sugar just didn’t compare. Friends and family fell for their almond milk, too, and now The Pressery is on a quest to bring it to all of London’s coffee shops.
