New World is throwing its hat into the ring for ready-to-go meals, allowing shoppers to get creative in the kitchen without the stress of figuring out what to serve every night. Customers at New World Eastridge, Stonefields, Howick, and Thorndon are the first to be able to try the kits.

The kits are prepared fresh in-store daily with pre-measured ingredients including meat or seafood, vegetables, spices and other special ingredients to give the dish a point of difference.  The options available change every week to keep things fresh and to capitalise on what’s in season, and have included Hot Smoked Salmon Spaghetti with Capers & Rocket, BBQ Lamb Rump with Rustic Greek Salad, and Scotch Fillet on Parmesan Mash & Orange Green Beans.

“We know there are many customers out there who are short on time and inspiration, who also need a bit of a nudge in the kitchen,” said Steve Bayliss, group general manager marketing, Foodstuffs (NZ) Ltd.  “Whether you are a couple or a family with two working parents and ravenous kids, our New World meal kits have been designed to be quick to prepare, tasty, nutritious and a little bit different.”

The meal kits start at $22.99 for two serves and $37.99 for four serves.
