A bowl of peanut butter and peanuts

“ Each of us can use a simple and delicious reminder that the world needs more love. Here it is.”

A pile of peanuts and crumbs

Our Story

Once upon a time, a young couple planning their wedding decided that jars of homemade peanut butter would be the perfect token of their love and appreciation for their guests. So they endeavored for weeks in their tiny Los Angeles apartment grinding down peanuts to make just enough jars of PB to give out to their friends and family. This is how Zach and Val Fishbain started out in 2013- not just as newlyweds, but as partners and co-founders of Spread The Love®.

Nobody at that wedding, certainly not Zach or Val, could have imagined that a simple idea to make something nutritious and delicious would blossom into an assortment of clean-label food products sold throughout the United States and internationally.

While our team and product line continue to grow, we take immense pride in remembering that Spread The Love® has very humble beginnings and none of what we've created since then would be possible without the support of each and every customer who has been part of our incredible journey. Thank you for helping us Spread The Love!

“We are proud to be a certified Minority and Woman-Owned Business.”
