Kenari Nuts – The caviar of nuts!

Introducing Indonesia’s best kept secret superfood, the Kenari Nut!

We stumbled across the beautiful East Forest Kenari Nuts on our search for the Pili Nut. Once we tried these delicate morsels, we were hooked and knew Kiwi's would be too.

––––––––––

Kenari Nuts (Canarium Amboinense Hoch) are a native of Eastern Indonesia. They’re harvested from wild Kenari trees which abundantly grow in the fertile soil of remote active volcanic islands across the Spice Islands region of Indonesia.

The rich fertile volcanic soil provides Kenari trees with the perfect essential micronutrients allowing the nuts to become jam packed with vitamins and minerals.

Kenari Nuts are well known for being high in Vitamin E, a source of Magnesium, Manganese, Phosphorus, as well as containing essential amino acids. They're certified organic and are sustainably hand picked and de-shelled (shucked) by locals. They’re then activated to break down the phytic acid, allowing the body to access their nutrients more readily. 

Rich in flavour and with a creamy buttery texture, these delicacies are truly the caviar of nuts!

–  %100 NATURAL

–  KETO FRIENDLY (salted/natural flavours)

Meet The Brattys –

Hi, we’re Ryan and Michaela Bratty! We’re proud to offer you premium Pili and Kenari Nuts that are delicious, nutritious and sustainably grown!

As passionate lovers of fine food and new healthy, ethically sourced products, we kept reading about the Pili Nut and their growing popularity overseas. The more we delved into this decadent delight, the more we became obsessed....before even tasting them! Once we got our hands on some, we knew we were onto something exciting that we had to share.

During our search for Pili Nuts, we came across East Forest Kenari Nuts (from the same nut family as the Pili Nut). Drawn in by their amazing health benefits, great company ethos and beautiful branding, we knew we had to get our hands on these too. We believe we’ve found the caviar of nuts!

Ryan was tired of the demanding office job and we yearned to have something of our own. We wanted a lifestyle change that gave us the freedom to work our own hours doing something we were passionate about, and allowed us to spend quality time with our three little Bratty's (Aiva 5, Coop 3 & Harry 1). 

We saw an opportunity to bring these intriguing nuts to NZ and whilst understanding the risk involved, we couldn't get the idea out of our heads. It was in the middle of Covid lockdown that we decided to make our dream of starting a business a reality.. Pili NZ was born! We're proud to offer you these new and exciting nuts that not only taste amazing, but are brimming with the good stuff!   


Grab them for a day out on the trails, use them to spruce up a meal, or to curb that afternoon craving!

–––––––––––––––

Pili and Kenari Nuts are a great snack or accompaniment to meals as a nutrient rich and energy packed superfood. Great as a heavy hitting snack for active lifestyles, or for those wanting to tart up their meals with an alternative to meat based proteins. They're the perfect indulgence for those with a discerning palate wanting a delicious nut to sprinkle into recipes or to bolster the appetiser platter. 

Only the good stuff!
