About The Nut Man

nutman logo

In October 1983, motivated largely by the oil recession, Calgarians Jim Miller and Allan Jonas took a 16th-century idea from England and decided to put a fresh zest into peddling wares in the marketplace. Throughout Europe, the candy and snack industry was vibrant and rich with colour, smells, and highly competitive. The Fins were proud of their Fazer Mints, the French had their chocolate snacks, and of course, no one knew sweets like the Brits. Jim and Allan wanted to bring this flair of taste, smell, colour, and the “Joie de Vive” to everyone in Alberta (and beyond).

In 2019, Jade Anderson, owner of Bumble Bee Baskets Inc., took over as the owner of The Nut Man Co Inc. to continue the legacy of fine treats, snacks, chocolates, nuts, toys,  and gifts that inspired the original owners years ago. Currently, The Nut Man offers over 70 varieties of prepackaged nuts, candies, chocolate, and mixes both domestic and imported from all over the world.

Today, we contribute over $80,000 a year to the Volunteer Resources of Hospitals through their commercial vendor program and over $50,000 per year to other charitable societies. We also have fundraising programs for schools, sports groups, and any interested party. 

Our products are changing to reflect the times. We constantly search for healthier items such as Soya nuts, flax, and various mixes, however, the quality nuts and chocolate seem to always be in demand. Our marketing programs expand and we seem to find ways of surviving the stresses of commerce.

We constantly search for healthier items such as Soya nuts, flax, and various mixes, however, the quality nuts and chocolate seem to always be in demand. Our marketing programs expand and we seem to find ways of surviving the stresses of commerce. Unchanged is our love for the business and the many friends we have made over the years.

Although we have grown from a very small beginning to a well-known company in many parts of Western Canada, it still feels like we are just beginning.
