NoShortcuts Gourmet Chutneys is a stand-alone business manufacturing, marketing, and distributing handcrafted artisan chutneys and relishes.

Through a passion and love for fine food, owner Mary Brons was inspired to create the name No Shortcuts to reflect the care and straight-forward approach that has been adopted in the development and creation of her premium product range. There are simply ‘no shortcuts’ taken in the manufacturing process, with each product being created from fresh, natural ingredients that we all know and understand. At times the preparation and cooking process may seem painstakingly time-consuming, but this labour of love achieves beautiful flavour and texture in small batches.

NoShortcuts was a finalist in the NZ Food Awards 2017, for their Feijoa and Ginger Jam. In 2018 the same Feijoa and Ginger jam was chosen as part of the Kiwiana hamper gifted by our PM Jacinda Ardern, to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth.

NoShortcuts’ Mustard Pickle was a finalist in the NZ Artisan Award 2018, the Feijoa Kasundi was a winner of the Countdown Supermarkets Grocery Food Award of the 2018 NZ Food Awards and a Silver Medal winner in the Outstanding Producers Awards 2019.

Despite her growth and success, Mary still prides herself on hand producing for today’s time-poor yet health conscious and environmentally aware consumers, a range of traditional chutney, pickle, relish and jam that is wholesome, real food, in the fast and easy convenience of a recyclable glass jar.
