Rocket Fuel PestoTM by Brace Gourmet, LLC is chef made in Essex County, Massachusetts, in a shared commercial kitchen. We are a chef-owned, self-funded business launched for direct-to-consumer sale at the end of 2019.

We use only the finest high-quality ingredients, and Rocket Fuel Pesto is:

  • Animal rennet-free (Vegetarian)

  • rBST hormone-free 

  • Plastic-free

  • Gluten-free

  • Also available vegan

We source as regionally as possible using non-GMO and organic greens, garlic, and oils, as well as organic, certified fairtrade Beyond cashews and family-owned Sartori cheese from Wisconsin (or nutritional yeast in Rocket Fuel Dairy-Free). We keep pushing sustainability as we grow, and are developing relationships with local and organic growers. Limited edition "Rocket Fuel Summer" with local greens hits markets in the summer! 








"Do you know where your cashews come from? We know exactly where ours do! From farm to bag, beyond has full traceability.  At beyond, we know (and train) the farmers that grow them and the truck drivers that deliver them.  We know the people that process our cashews.  We know those that roast and package them.  Simply put, we are dedicated to transparency.   By choosing beyond,  you will not only have the best organic + fairtrade cashews around, but you are also helping to fight the injustices within the industry and empowering people from the farmer to the consumer."

Why the Cashew?

We also launched nut-free superfood pesto in late 2021 - try Rocket Fuel Sunflower and Rocket Fuel Pumpkin 'gold label' varieties.

Keep Refrigerated. Keeps 20-25 Days -- preservative-free -- depending on type. Freezes beautifully.
