About Wander Nut Butters
We love cooking, travel and nuts of all kinds.
Blending those together resulted in Wander - internationally spiced nut butters.
Inspiration struck when we made two of our favourite "quick dinners" within the span of a few days - a Moroccan stew and a Thai noodle dish.
The Thai noodles have a peanut butter based sauce and it was while lamenting not having lemongrass and lime leaf that we thought:
"How convenient would it be to have them IN the peanut butter?"
That reminded us that the stew also used peanut butter and THOSE spices would be delicious in peanut butter.
Many months, recipes and taste tests later, Wander officially launched in 2021.
Made using only peanuts, spices and salt, each flavour draws on flavours of the region and while it's "nut butter" than travel, it's the next best thing!
We acknowledge with respect the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples on whose traditional territory we live and work and whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.

We recognize and acknowledge the historical impacts of colonization, residential schools and associated attitudes and policies that continue to impact Indigenous Peoples.
Many of these ramifications are evident in Toronto, where 90% of the city’s Indigenous population lives at or below the low income line and are more likely than non-Indigenous to be homeless, unemployed and to have not completed high school.
This inequity contributes to chronic disease, mental health issues, drug and alcohol abuse, and complex health issues resulting in multiple health care needs and in many cases, premature death.
For over 30 years Anishnawbe Health Toronto has been the only provider of western medical services combined with traditional healing services within a multi-disciplinary health care model. This Indigenous-led, accredited Community Health Centre is the model for other Indigenous Community Health Centres and health access centres across Ontario.
Our wanderings abroad may have been part of the inspiration for Wander, however there’s nothing we love more than wandering in the wilderness closer to home.
Canada has an estimated 20% of the world’s last great wilderness: our forests, wetlands, mountains, rivers and oceans act as the lungs of the planet and a critical buffer against climate change.
Industrial development is spreading faster and further than before and action is needed to protect our wilderness for future generations.
For over 50 years, the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society has played a lead role in protecting public land and water, and ensuring our parks are managed to protect the nature within them.
We believe in inclusion, acceptance and that love is love is love. Unfortunately this belief is not universal and 2SLGBTQI people continue to face hatred, discrimination and violence.
Egale is Canada’s leading organization for 2SLGBTQI people and issues.. It aims to improve the lives of 2SLGBTQI people in Canada and to enhance the global response to 2SLGBTQI issues through informing public policy, inspiring cultural change, and promoting human rights and inclusion through research, education, awareness and legal advocacy.
