One Wellington peanut butter company has gone where no Kiwi food company has gone before.

Last year, nut butter brand Fix & Fogg was approached by NASA with a request to create a space rocket-approved product. 

After months of working with the space agency to find the perfect delivery and storage pouch, Fix and Fogg's nut butter was launched into space on a recent six-month mission.
