Mount Mayon Pili Nuts
Mount Mayon, the world’s premium Pili Nut brand already popular in the US and Asia, has secured its first UK national listing.
The healthy nut snack went into 19 Boots stores within the UK’s leading pharmacy-led health and beauty retailer’s ‘Wellness’ portfolio, from the end of December. Boots will be stocking three variants (Himalayan Pink Salt; Ecuadorian Cacao; and Kyoto Matcha) from the Mount Mayon range, supplied in a snack sachet format, to capitalise on the buoyant healthy snacking market, the company said.
The new Boots listing marks the brand’s first entry into a major multiple retailer, although Mount Mayon is already stocked by 14 other high-profile retailers across the UK including Planet Organic, Selfridges and Partridges.
Pili Nuts are grown in the Philippines and are 100% natural, gluten-free, cholesterol free and trans fats free. Mount Mayon’s nuts represent the lowest net carbs of any nut and are highest in magnesium and rich in Omega 9 oils, according to the company.
Pili Nuts also offer a high source of protein, fibre and, due to their naturally occurring high levels of vitamin E, are a 'powerful antioxidant' that is associated with skin health and appearance.
Mount Mayon nuts are grown without harmful chemicals and are certified as free of pesticide residue. The brand also utilities a proprietary 'SloDry' method of processing that maintains healthy oils and proteins.
Mount Mayon Pili Nuts are certified non-GM, halal, kosher and vegan.
