Harris Teeter Welcomes Betsy’s Best Gourmet Almond Butter to Stores in Nine States
Harris Teeter stores will carry Betsy’s Best Gourmet Almond Butter. This unique nut butter is gluten-free, certified non-GMO, and features delicious, all-natural superfood ingredients.
NAPLES, FL – Betsy’s Best, maker of delicious and nutritious gourmet nut and seed butters, announced today their most recent partnership with Harris Teeter, the Matthews, North Carolina based grocer. Betsy’s Best Gourmet Almond Butter is now available in Harris Teeter stores throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, Maryland, Delaware, Florida and the District of Columbia.
Frustrated by the lack of healthy and good tasting nut butters, Betsy Opyt, Betsy’s Best President and CEO, took to her kitchen to make something better. Opyt, a registered dietitian, was inspired to create an all-natural nut butter that was not only good for you, but that her young daughter would love. The result is a delicious product line of gluten-free, non-GMO certified gourmet nut and seed butters with an enhanced nutrition and flavor profile.
“As a registered dietitian, I read labels closely to make sure I’m not feeding my family partially hydrogenated soybean oil, high fructose corn syrup, or trans fats,” Opyt explains. “I set out to create a delicious product that people can depend on for containing only the best ingredients. Each Betsy’s Best nut and seed butter flavor features superfood ingredients, including Himalayan pink salt, chia seeds, cinnamon and honey, sourced from responsible, honest and healthy vendors.”
The partnership with Harris Teeter aligns with the company’s current growth strategy.
“Harris Teeter is a homegrown company with a commitment to bringing fresh, innovative products to their customers,” says Opyt. “We love working with retail partners who care so much about lining their shelves with the highest quality products, because we strive everyday to provide the best possible nut and seed butters for our customers.”
