Our history in a nutshell!
Morish Nuts is a family owned and operated business. Archie Moroni & Marie Mapp started Morish Nuts in a rented town house in Cottesloe, Western Australia, with Archie cooking half-kilo batches on a camping gas ring and Marie bagging and tying the cellophane bags with curling ribbon.
These first offerings were then sold at the local universities and markets. The reception to Morish Nuts was most pleasing and meant that more time had to be allocated to Morish Nuts and less to Archie's studies at university, until eventually studies were placed on long term hold to concentrate on producing Morish Nuts.
Morish Nuts are still made the same individual way, except we can now produce more from our factory in the Swan Valley, located at at 640 Great Northern Highway, Herne Hill, WA. Our spacious new kitchen enables us to experiment with new products for your selection, such as our decadent Crunch and Peanut Brittle. For those with a taste for the exotic and that little extra bite, we have developed our own brand of Hot & Spicy caramel coated peanuts, cashews and macadamias.
Only premium selected nuts are used from Australian producers when available. We roast and lightly caramel-coat to enhance the natural flavour of the nuts and kernels, and no colourant, additive or preservative is added. Our savoury Morish Nuts products are also an excellent option for those who prefer a healthier snack!
As only select nuts are used, Morish Nuts are popular for that unique gift because of their excellent taste. The appearance is eye-catching, in an elegant candy-striped black and white gift box. Besides being an ideal birthday, anniversary, Mother's day and Christmas gift, Morish Nuts make an excellent addition to any gift hamper and are a perfect corporate gift where only the taste is intoxicating.
Morish Nuts are available at craft fairs, agricultural shows, field days or special events. Buy them from our mobile market barrows, at our stall at the Heritage Listed Fremantle Markets or at our new factory & gift shop at 640 Great Northern Highway, Herne Hill, WA. Should you find it difficult to attend fairs or shows etc., we do offer a comprehensive mail order service and would welcome adding your name to our list of satisfied customers. Furthermore, it offers you the opportunity to win one of our scrumptious Morish Nuts gift hampers.
Morish Nuts has wowed magnate Richard Branson's Virgin Australia Airlines and provides tasty Morish Savoury Nibbles as part of Virgin's in-flight menu. The deal was struck after a Virgin team member went nutty for the traditional recipe at the Ekka!
