Our story

Healthy living should be simple and choosing the right things to eat should not be difficult. It’s our mission to make healthy living effortless, simple and tasty. We strive to share and educate the simplicity of a healthy - naturally nutritionally dense - life with the local community on Curaçao.

We believe Mother Nature offers us everything we need in life and we are firm believers in 'food as medicine'. All that is needed to live a healthy lifestyle is already within our reach. This means our shop is 100% vegan. We hope to motivate and inspire others to join our movement towards a healthy life!

We wish you all the best on your healthy journey and it's a privilege to be part of it. Read on below to find out more about our journey.

Maurice, Jantine & Sophie


How it all started
We ordered the first batch of nuts just for ourselves (and for friends), since nuts are a big part of our vegan diet. We found that nuts were not accessible on the island, too high in price or the freshness was not what we expected. More friends and colleagues noticed we had fresh nuts and they wanted them too, so we decided to start selling them low-key. Seeing how enthusiastic and grateful people were, the excitement began.

A lot of customers from the first hour know us from Merkado Fresku at Hofi Kalabash, which we joined every month.

We roasted the nuts in our kitchen, in our small oven at home, sometimes all night long. The hard work paid off, because we received a lot of positive feedback from our customers who loved the freshness and the crunch of our nuts.


Expansion of assortment 
Because of all the positive responses from our customers, we felt that healthy and nutrient dense foods could be made more accessible on the island. We believe this can help people to live a simpler healthier life. So we decided to expand our assortment little by little, with dried fruits, nut butters, vegan cheeses and more. Still to this day we are slowly expanding our assortment with more products that can benefit your health.


After a year, we bought a larger professional oven and started an online shop. Still growing and expanding, aiming to reach everyone on Curaçao with our passion for powerfoods.


100% plant based online shop​

We wanted to create a place where people can feel safe shopping for their needs without ever worrying about compromising their values.

We are well known for our freshly oven-roasted nuts that have a crunch you can't resist. Besides nuts, we sell a wide variety of dried fruits, seeds and other powerfoods. We put a lot of love and care in our products which are artisanally made. For example our vegan cheeses, spreads, stuffed dates or bliss balls.



Our physical store is open!

We are happy and grateful for opening our physical store at SBN van Staverenweg 2 in Mahaai! Now we are, even more that before, able to connect with our customers and share all the healthy & delicious products we have to offer. We're happy to welcome you in our store and look forward to seeing you.


First edition of Nuts & Friends
We hosted the first edition of Nuts & Friends event at Nut House where we invited local vendors, had fun kids activities, taste testing, a peek behind the scenes, music & drinks. The event was a great success and multiple editions followed in the year after.


It is with great sadness that we had to say goodbye to Sophie in August 2022, after she lost the fight against cancer. Our dear Sophie was the initiator of Nut House and put the first action behind the idea of starting the business. With great passion she was working hard to build her dream of creating a healthy life for many people through Nut House. She spoke with high contagious enthusiasm to anyone she could about our products. She inspired many people (to this day) to live a healthier life with meaning.

We have come to appreciate the incredible support we received from our community during the difficult time with the loss of Sophie. The outpouring of love and encouragement has touched our hearts. It has served as a reminder that Nut House is not just a business: it is a family, a community, and a movement. The past year we learned how resilient we can be and it has strengthened our determination to carry forward Sophie's vision. Despite the challenges and heartache, we remain steadfast in our commitment to Nut House and its mission. We are committed to preserving her legacy and ensuring that Nut House remains a beacon of inspiration for those seeking a better, more fulfilling life. We invite you to join us on this journey as we honor Sophie's memory and build upon the foundation she helped create. Together, we can make a difference, one healthy choice at a time.


Our new roasting oven!

After years of dreaming about this oven, we are super excited to finally have it in our roastery in Curaçao. This special nut roasting oven, does not only make the nut roasting process more efficient, but also more consistent, more delicious and more healthy. We are now able to dry roast all our nuts, even the salty ones. Nothing is added besides a bit of filtered water als himalayan salt.
