Made in New Zealand by imported Frenchmen, L'Authentique Charcuterie makes sausages, parfait, rillettes and terrine to traditional standards in small batches using quality ingredients. Most of the range is gluten free with no fillers, no dairy and no flour, and quality cuts of free farmed meat are used.

Guillaume Desmurs founded the business in 2006, setting out to make food without compromise. He started selling at Pyrenees and La Cigale French Market in Parnell, and now sells in Farro Fresh, Nosh, Moore Wilsons and selected New Worlds around the country.

L'Authentique recently expanded to a new custom site, so are now running two sites in Auckland, one for cooked products and one for raw.

Owner Lisa Lewis said they have many future plans.

“We are working on four or five new products. Our delicious French style nitrate free salami made with all New Zealand quality free range meat is next.”
