About Betsy's Best

Let's cut to the chase. It seems like so much healthy food these days is totally boring. And you know what?  I don’t like boring. I’m all about adding fun and sophistication to delicious and natural foods.

Known as “Betsy Crocker” since my sorority days, I was always finding creative ways to make tasty - yet healthy - food for my friends. And one day it hit me, why not make my unique gourmet foods available to everyone? So began Betsy’s Best Gourmet Nut and Seed Butters.

As a registered dietitian and the 2015 Florida Young Mother of the Year, I hate it when I see chemicals and artificial ingredients junking up healthy and delicious foods like peanut butter (there’s nothing gourmet about partially hydrogenated soybean oil.)

I only use wholesome, natural ingredients in my Gourmet Peanut, Almond, Cashew Butter, and Seed Butter, mixed with unique flavors like cinnamon and chia seeds, to create products that are totally nutritious, delicious and different.

My only real worry? My Betsy’s Best products are so addicting, you’ll have a hard time sticking to one serving. So as any good dietitian would tell you, practice portion control!

How to make a better butter
To be at its best, butter only relies on one ingredient. Butterfat. Without it, you haven’t got real butter. However most ‘butters’ nowadays are sadly lacking in butterfat, and high in milk protein to meet the needs of mass production.
Lewis Road doesn’t do cheap imitations, so our Premium Butters are made to the exacting standards that a superior butter requires. So much so, our butters recently picked up a swag of awards at the 2015 New Zealand Cheese Awards. Yep, they’re that good they won at a cheese show.
But butterfat can’t take all the credit of course. Ross McCallum, the founder of Kapiti Cheese who developed our taste profiles, and Murray Seamark, who keeps a hawk’s eye on everything that comes from our churn, can share in the accolades too. Bravo gentlemen. You can enjoy their fine creations in Unsalted, Lightly Salted, Sea Salt Crystal, and our Artisan Sea Salt Crystal butters. You’ll find each slab wrapped in foil to keep it at its absolute finest.




About the Company

Madness, we thought. That here in New Zealand, a country which doubles as any self-respecting dairy cow’s dream home with its endless rolling green hills, we were importing butters all the way from…Europe! Absolute madness. Surely the country making the world’s best dairy produce, had to be the one given the greatest head-start by mother nature.

So we quietly set about restoring natural order to the world, bought ourselves an Italian butter churn and set it up in a converted shipping container. And from that shipping container, in Lewis Road, in the Bay of Plenty, we began our quest to make the world’s very best dairy. Madness, they said. Absolute madness.

It’s a funny old world isn’t it? Sometimes progress isn’t progress at all. Instead of making things better, it makes them an imitation of what they once were.
 At Lewis Road we’ve found some of our greatest innovations have been by going back, way back, to how things were done before compromise crept in.

We don’t ask how to make something cheaper, or how to produce as much of it as possible, we only ask ourselves this: How can we make it as it should be?

That one simple question is the driving force behind every single thing we do, from the people we hire to the packaging we use. Because real progress for us, is what it should be for everyone; making things better.
