Where do Kiwi’s look when firing up the BBQ for that first summer evening? Nowhere but Hellers, New Zealand’s Butcher.

Hellers have a reputation for creating delicious sausages with innovative seasonal flavours. This year saw the successful release of the Winter Range, including the popular Angus Beef, Stout and Mushroom Sausage. With summer just around the corner, what better way to celebrate than with the release of Hellers’ tasty new Summer Sausage Range.

If you like it hot, then the Sriracha pork sausage is the one for you. Made from Free-Farmed Pork with Korean Sriracha Chilli Powder, this sausage sure packs a punch. Just as full of flavour is the Free-Range Chicken, Lemon and Oregano sausage, one for the whole family!

This range is perfect for the BBQ with their thin casing allowing a quicker cook. They come in a five pack standing out on shelves in their bright green trays. You can certainly celebrate summer with Hellers.

And it doesn’t stop there! Kiwi’s cannot get enough of Hellers’ tasty salami. Adding to the cold cuts range is now the even more convenient 250g salami chub, in handy re-sealable packs. These are sure winners for any occasion this summer!

The only Tomato Ketchup that’s 100% Sweetened By Veggies.

“It’s taken me three years to make great-tasting Tomato Ketchup, sweetened only with 100% New Zealand vegetables—now that’s gotta be a good thing, right? Enjoy!” — Simon Gault

Gault’s Tomato Ketchup is a world-first tomato sauce that is sweetened only with 100% New Zealand vegetables and tastes just like ketchup.  No artificial sweeteners, colours, or preservatives. Of course, it is delicious: it’s Simon Gault’s recipe.

Since selling out of product in the morning on the second day of The Auckland Food Show, demand has been unprecedented and feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.

"We are proud of the fact that the ingredients for Gault’s Tomato Ketchup are grown right here in New Zealand — where it is also made — and that merits the mark, 'Product of New Zealand'."

Furthermore, Gault’s does not contain any other natural or artificial sweeteners like stevia — it’s sweetened only with 100% local New Zealand vegetables.

To ensure that your shoppers have a successful BBQ season, make sure you have Gault’s 100% Sweetened By Veggies Ketchup on your shelf.
