New UK nut association
The Combined Edible Nut Trade Association and the British Peanut Council have joined together to form The Nut Association (TNA).
Open to all companies involved in the supply, distribution and manufacture of nuts and allied products, TNA aims to be proactive in finding opportunities to promote nuts and to address issues which may impact the nut industry.
Incoming chairman of the board of directors, Nick Thomas, of nut supplier Barrow Lane & Ballard, says, “We want to see the nut industry continue to thrive in this exciting era when retailers and consumers alike are more aware of the health benefits of nuts and are looking for innovative ways to include them in everyday foods as well as enjoying them as snacks.
“We encourage all companies involved in the nut industry, whether a multinational with operations in the UK or a small start up company launching new nut products, to join us to help support their business aims.”
