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.[1] Sun-Pat had a factory in Peckham, South London that was bombed during the blitz. Several girls were killed and many injured.[2]

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.[3] Premier Foods had acquired Sun-Pat after its 2002 acquisition of Nestlé's ambient food business.[4]
