Food As Nature Intended

18 years ago NZ small food brand Pitango distributed their first ever soup, Pitango Organic Pumpkin & Ginger Soup. Cooked in small batches by chefs using real, organic and local produce, this soup was an instant favourite with New Zealand consumers.

Today, Pitango soups and meals are a staple in most NZ homes, with their original Organic Pumpkin & Ginger Soup remaining the No.1 top selling Pitango flavour.

The Organic Pumpkin & Ginger Soup has remained true to the cooking method and ingredients since it first launched, with Organic Pumpkins still sourced fresh from Hawkes Bay, then hand peeled and cooked in small batches by chefs.

For almost two decades Pitango has been dedicated to creating fresh soups and meals that are good for you and taste great. And they always will!

The certified Organic, Pumpkin & Ginger and Minestrone soups, are available in 500g pouches found in the chiller section of supermarkets nationally.

Kōkako launched their Drinking Chocolate blend in 2009. With a classic mix of premium grade Fairtrade organic cocoa sourced from Conacado Cooperative in the Dominican Republic and Fairtrade organic sugar from the Manduvira Cooperative in Paraguay, it has been a popular pantry choice for ethically minded kiwi families ever since. The high organic cocoa to organic golden cane sugar ratio (40% and 60% respectively), and the absence of fillers, emulsifiers or preservatives makes it one of the richest premium drinking chocolate blends on the market.

The blend is sold in high barrier compostable packaging that is made from three different compostable films, laminated together to lock in the freshness, taste and flavour. These films compost when disposed of in a home or industrial composting environment containing heat, water, oxygen, soil and micro-organisms.

Certified Fairtrade, Biogro Organic and packaged in a compostable zip-lock pouch; in essence, it’s the perfect indulgence this winter that you can feel good about. Proudly distributed in New Zealand by Ceres Organics & suitable for vegans and coeliacs.
