Who we are
We are a New Zealand family owned Plant Based Wholefoods manufacturer committed to making delicious food staples using only real food - no nasty ingredients.
Kia Ora! We are a multicultural blended family of two adults, 4 teenagers, 2 dogs, 1 cat and 2 gold fish.
We are big foodies who love experimenting in the kitchen. The concept of Feliz Wholefoods started a few years ago when we went plant based. We started making Vutter from our home because we could no longer stomach the highly processed / horrible tasting margarines we were forced to buy due to a lack of options... we desperately needed a good alternative to one of our favorite staples - butter. Many 'incarnations' later, we developed the perfect blend - with no soy, nuts, gluten, artificial additives, palm oil or GMO ingredients. We are very proud to say that the ingredients we use to make Vutter are things that you and I probably have in our pantries right now!
We served Vutter Original and Garlic to our friends and whanau in our wedding in Feb 2018... no labels, just the buttery goodness on the table with some nice loafs of fresh bread... everyone just loved it! The best thing was - not one of them was vegan! We got told repeatedly that night that we would be crazy not to be selling this as "it is better than real butter"! Party talk or not, we knew they were right...
Now here we are. Few years later and we have finally made it and launched Vutter in New Zealand. Our mission as a company is to get people eating more plants and less animals. We want to join the movement of creating a greener and more compassionate Aotearoa, and we will do this by providing people with delicious plant based alternatives that are made from real food, no weird names or numbers.
