Num Num Peanut Butter

My name's Amy! I founded a flavoured peanut butter business in April 2014. It's called Num Num Peanut Butter, and has three sugar-free products in the range. They're available in 10 supermarkets in Melbourne. Before founding Num Num, I worked as a journalist and public relations practitioner.
