From little acorns grow mighty oaks

On Monday 29 April about 40 members of the Probus Club visited the brand new factory in Saxton Road, Stoke where Mr Pic's company makes peanut butter for export to the world.  He started making this product in a converted concrete mixer about ten years ago, using peanuts grown in Queensland Australia, and sold his produce at the Nelson market.   Now he employs about 30 people and makes about 275 thousand jars of peanut butter a day which are exported to many countries including Australia.  The factory has been designed as a show case for this tasty food,and we were treated to a conducted tour followed by coffee in the cafe.  Congratulations to Jerry G the organiser.  It was a great morning.
