Hi, my name’s Mai. Welcome to Wilde Nuts.
Wilde Nuts exists for one reason: to provide you with great tasting, nut-based products that give you high quality nutrition without compromising on quality or flavour.
It’s that one thing that’s driven me, and our team here at Wilde Nuts, since we started in 2016.
In my earlier life, I was involved in a multi-million dollar company in California that bought and sold primarily almonds.
I was actually born in Denmark, but after university I took the leap and headed out to the U.S., where I launched the first nut business with people who knew all about almonds.
It ended up being very successful – we shipped almonds all over the world.
It was a fantastic time. We were pioneers in almond trading. We bought massive amounts of almonds from small and large family farms and sold them directly to industrial companies, primarily in Europe.
After many years of this, I realised that it was time to do something new and I moved back to Europe.
I’ve always cared deeply about wholesome foods that actually taste good, and about helping others to achieve true balance in their nutrition. I knew that ultimately, that’s where I needed to focus my time.
I sold my interest in the business, and launched Wilde Nuts in Stratford-upon-Avon after learning about raw food production in Denmark.
If you care about the things that you put into your body, then the chances are you’re pretty familiar with this whole ‘health food’ industry.
The trouble is, a lot of what you’re told is healthy is anything but...
Granolas, oat-based products and breakfast cereals containing huge amounts of refined sugars.
Protein bars and biscuits held together with oils, gum and goodness knows what else.
“Snacking” nuts, flavoured with a list of unpronounceable ingredients and literally glued into place.
Fad diets sold with buzz words that are here today and gone tomorrow.
I set out to provide an alternative for the health-conscious consumer that was natural and did actually taste great.
And for me, the buzz word is BALANCE. A true key to good health.
Most nuts have unique nutritional properties and are excellent substitutes to meat products or just simple compliments to a balanced diet.
I got to work with the help of an expert raw food chef and we began concocting delicious raw granolas, beautiful nut butters and an assortment of gourmet nuts from our purpose built nut roastery in Stratford-upon-Avon as well as specialised partners in Holland.
People loved them as much as we did, and – well – the rest is history.
From the get go, our nut shop in Stratford has attracted an ever growing and amazing team of young and extremely enthusiastic individuals. Today, I am so proud of our Wilde staff and management teams. I feel that I am continuously learning new lessons from the next generation while providing an exciting place for everyone to work and evolve from.
Our products are stocked in independent shops, cafes, food halls and organic supermarkets all over the UK, Ireland and in Scandinavia. We also sell them directly from our premises in Stratford-Upon-Avon; literally 27 yards from Shakespeare’s birthplace via our rapidly growing online business.
Our commitment and focus hasn’t changed one iota.
We’ll continue to provide great-tasting nut products to people who care about what goes into their bodies for as long as they want us to. We’ll stay true to our core, staying real, staying fun and staying “Wilde”. We chose “Wilde” because it sums up how we try to do everything. Natural. No nonsense. Raw. Wholesome. In touch with the earth. Wilde.
