about FiX & FOGG
Four and a half years ago, I started Fix & Fogg with my wife Andrea when we were expecting our first child. Previously both lawyers, we made the choice to leave behind the corporate life and dedicate our time and energy to creating something meaningful, sustainable, and delicious. We decided to make the best butters.
We love that we make every jar of Fix & Fogg from start to finish in our factory in Wellington. From designing our labels to our carefully blended peanut butter, we’re completely hands-on throughout the entire process. We think our award-winning butters are so popular because people can taste the difference in a product that’s handmade by humans who care about quality.
We’re really proud of the fact that our peanut butter has now won awards in both New Zealand and Australia - but even more so that people like you are out there supporting this journey that we're on and helping us grow as a business. You’re our people.
We wouldn’t be, couldn’t be doing this without you.
What's in a name?
Our name comes from two characters from the classic 1873 adventure novel, Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne: Phileas Fogg and Detective Fix.
Like the story, the idea of embarking on a great journey, taking risks and trying new things resonated with us - you can get a taste for it in our unusual peanut butter varieties, innovate packaging and although we're not quite sold in 80 countries around the world... maybe one day we could do just that.
Our work with charities means a lot to us. We believe in giving back to the community that supports us - it's a big part of who we are and what makes us tick. We donate to the following charities:
- City Missions | Auckland, Christchurch & Wellington
- Women's Refuges | Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch & Dunedin
- Ronald McDonald Houses | Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch & Invercargill
- Love Soup | Whangarei, Rotorua & Tokoroa
We also believe in doing our bit for the environment which is why we’re big on reducing food waste, recycling, offering a public jar return at our Eva Street window, and delivering our products within the CBD by cargo bike with our buddy Russ at NoCar Cargo.
For every clean jar that's returned to us, we make a 20c donation to the Free Store, who redistribute surplus food from Wellington eateries to those who need it most.
We're also proud to be one of only a few food manufacturers in New Zealand that is Living Wage accredited. Because happy people, make the best butters.
