On August 25 from 1-2 pm the Southern Food & Beverage Museum will host Will Myers of Beyond the Equator, a retail offshoot of the local wholesale company Supreme Specialty Foods, for a demonstration using their delicious 5 Seed Butter. 

Beyond the Equator has tapped into a growing market of health-conscious eaters, including those with food allergies and sensitivities, along with those always in search of the next delicious trend. The company’s latest invention, 5 Seed Butter, was just selected in June from more than 3,000 entries across 39 specialty food categories for the national Specialty Food Association’s Best New Product (Nuts and Seed Butter category) award. Sales for the butter have increased each month, enough so that Beyond the Equator is now aiming to expand its retail line off the product’s popularity.

The program begins at 1 PM in the Rouses Culinary Innovation Center by Jenn-Air, samples are first come first serve. Free with museum admission.

About the Company

"Beyond the Equator's origin story goes back almost 15 years, when a longtime Louisiana sugarcane farmer founded a farm in Bolivia, " Myerssaid. "While farming, he learned about the many superfoods grown in South America and how underutilized they were back home. In 2017, he decided to launch Beyond the Equator with the mission of incorporating superfoods into commonly used products. Today, our flagship creation is 5 Seed Butter, an allergen-friendly nut butter replacement made from sunflower, chia, flax, hemp, and pumpkin seeds. Every day we strive to provide healthy, natural, and easy to use foods for our customers, and we plan to launch many more tasteful and practical products in the coming years."
