Thousands of Canadians suffer from life-threatening nut allergies and many schools ban peanut butter from the classroom. Consumers are demanding more peanut-free products. Hilton Soy Foods is answering the call. This innovator has created a soy product that tastes like peanut butter. Their product, Soy Butter, has won several taste tests and is being used by various manufacturers to develop new nut-free products. Caterers for children’s camps and schools are also asking suppliers to carry this product. This innovation has benefited soybean farmers, created new jobs and market opportunities in the processing sector and offers peace of mind to consumers.
