Stu Macdonald is properly into Peanut Butter. Peanut butter isn’t just a business for Stu, he is passionate about where it’s from, where it is going, and the incredible people involved along the way. He is fascinated with the craft element of producing quality products, which he believes is aligned with the sourcing ethos of coffee, chocolate, and wine with a focus on the terroir, roasts, and batch production.
Stu founded ManiLife off the back of a year in Argentina where he was working for a peanut butter social enterprise and subsequently met the farm that ManiLife still source from today. After importing the first ton of peanuts he had a brief spell as an accountant at PwC before finally packing it in and going full-time peanut butter in October 2016.
