How “Two Hot Guys” Ended Up Making Lactation Nut Butter For Breastfeeding Mums
The almond butter by 2NutGuys has proven so popular, even men are lapping it up.
“We want our lactation nut butter spread to be the first product that mummies think of after they deliver [their babies],” declares 35-year-old David Ho (left in pic) boldy, the entrepreneur behind year-old home-based business 2NutGuys. What are lactation-labelled foods anyway? They are products that are specially developed to include healthy ingredients to nourish new mums and help them boost their breast milk supply. More commonly found lactation food products in the market include lactation cookies and drinks.
“And that it will be so popular that hospitals like Thomson Medical Centre will invite us to be on their shelves,” adds his business partner Lee Chee Leong (right), 37.
These are big dreams, indeed. 2NutGuys is touted as the first and only lactation nut butter business in the market. Other than nut butters, they also sell naturally flavoured, home-roasted nuts.
Nut products aside, 2NutGuys, who sometimes refer to themselves as, ahem, “two hot guys”, say that they came up with the witty name as they like to “look at things from a nutty and unconventional way”.
