About us

Maritime Gourmet Nut Company is owned and operated by Bob Dunsworth of Southwest Cove in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. Bob honours the traditional German roasting techniques that have been passed down over generations.

Nut roasting originated in Munich, Germany as a harvest ritual and that evolved into a staple of beer festival celebrations. Bob, who values the “old ways” has learned the time-honoured methods from a traditional family at immigrated from Germany a generation ago.

Bob strives to deliver the freshest, tastiest product on the market today. Using original German equipment, Bob is proud to offer traditionally roasted almonds, cashews, peanuts and pumpkin seeds. His delicious recipes come in both sweet and savoury options that perfectly compliment the unique flavours of each nut.
