Pic’s for the planet


Pic’s processes around one tonne of peanuts every hour into as many as 28,000 jars of peanut butter every day and now, thanks to the installati­on of 486 solar panels on Pic’s’ roof in Nelson, it takes just 10.3 seconds of sun to produce each jar. Pic’s is also supporting a new horticultu­re industry in Northland, joining with the Ministry for Primary Industries and Plant & Food to grow commercial yields of peanuts in the region. “Producing our raw materials locally will hugely reduce our inward freight carbon emissions,” says Pic’s chief peanut butter maker Pic Picot. picspeanut­
