Sun-Pat is a brand of peanut butter in the United Kingdom. Even though American peanut butter had been sold in the UK since the 1930s, Sun-Pat was not launched until the 1960s, initially produced as a by-product of a nut-packing operation in Hadfield, Derbyshire. The factory was closed in 2004 and production has now moved to Histon in Cambridgeshire. Sun-Pat had a factory in Peckham, South London that was bombed during the blitz. Several girls were killed and many injured.
In the early 1990s a range of cheese spreads were also produced under the Sun-Pat brand but were later discontinued.
The brand is currently owned by Hain Celestial Group after its 2012 acquisition of Premier Foods' spreads and jellies business. Premier Foods had acquired Sun-Pat after its 2002 acquisition of Nestlé's ambient food business.
