There are hundreds of different nuts you haven't tried yet. What are you waiting for?

Basis Nuts is a new company in Denmark that wants to bring the best, most flavorful and interesting varieties to you. We import unique, delicious nut varieties directly from the growers and processors to Denmark.
Many nuts are grown in one country, then transported to another country for processing, before sold to a third or fourth country. We're hoping to change that by buying directly from producing countries and highlighting every nut variety's distinctiveness -- so that consumers can start to know the difference and farmers can start to benefit.
Do you know where your nuts come from?
