Waiheke Island Herb Spread is a unique blend of traditional and wild fresh herbs in olive oil. Similar to a pesto but without dairy or nuts, it makes a delicious addition to a wide variety of meals while being 100 percent natural, and is packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and flavour.

Handcrafted on Waiheke Island, the recipe for the spread was developed by home herbalist Wendy Kendall in 2005, as a healthy condiment for her family. Enthusiastic customers at the local market and then at Farmers markets in Auckland convinced her to continue marketing her product into organic stores, Nosh, Farro Fresh, Moore Wilson, and New World supermarkets over the next 8 years. There are now over 100 stockists who continue to order regularly.

Enjoyed by children and adults alike, Waiheke Herb Spread is delicious on bread, roast meats, salads, with an antipasto platter, through pasta, potatoes, egg dishes or on pizza, and is suitable for Vegetarians, Vegans, Raw Foodists, Paleo diets or those with dairy and nut allergies.

They say there’s no taste like home, and Loaf’s delicious range of gourmet slices have the same flavour sensations hidden in Mum’s cake tin.

Loaf products are hand-crafted and free from preservatives, artificial colours, flavourings and fillers. The range of slices provides New Zealanders with handcrafted baking for those who don't manage to find the time to bake.

The range consists of Sticky Chocolate Brownie, Rocky Road, Gooey Caramel, Orchard Road, Lolly Slice and Cranberry & Pistachio slice.

What gives these scrumptious slices their distinctive homemade flavour is that they’re made just the way we're supposed to – with only the finest natural ingredients and a lot of love. Loaf’s creator, talented chef Sean Armstrong, said “Loaf is all about wholesome food and real ingredients, but above all, flavour. All along we have strived to produce food for people who enjoy baking just like Mum used to make.”

These are in a bulk 440g format, designed to complement the existing single-serve offering.
