We produce a range of Chutneys and fruit dressings just like Grandma use to.
We make all of our products in small batches, so we are able to taste them and have a consistent product that we can supply to our customers. This way our customers are guaranteed the same product consistency every time an order is placed.
We label all our jars and bottles by hand.
We use no artificial colouring or preservatives in our products and use locally grown products where possible, but always NZ grown.
We would like to see our range of products sold throughout the country so everyone can get the pleasure of some amazing New Zealand made products.
We started our business in April 2012 as a Café, which we now have had to close. This was due to Andy having an accident and becoming a Quadriplegic and ending up in a wheelchair. So we have now become a small family business and by small we mean Margaret (mother in law), Shelley (wife) and me( Andy). I am a chef of over 20 years and even though the hands may not work properly the brain still does. So I come up with the ideas and recipes and then Margaret and Shelley come home from work and on the weekends make, bottle and label the products.
I have gradually started adding to the range of dressings and chutneys that we started producing in the Café for our customers. Our customers asked us where we purchased the chutneys we used on our burgers and the dressings we used on our salads. So when they found out we made them I started producing them so they could buy them and take them home. We have now gone on to include a range of fruit dressings that are vinegar based and not found any where in New Zealand. None of our dressings are finished with any type of oil and that is our point of difference and flavour. It tastes just like the label says!
All of our products are gluten free, preservative free and are celiac and vegan friendly .
