About the business:
Before CEO Santiago Cuenca-Romero established Premier Organics, he worked in the meat industry in Spain. After moving to America, he discovered peanut butter and became so fascinated by it that he began to research the food. His peanut butter pursuits led him to almond and cashew butter.
Cuenca-Romero worked out that he could apply his meat grinding expertise to make nut butter. With the help of investment from two partners and all of his savings, Premier Organics was born.
