Freedom Farms are stoked to introduce a new Smoked Pork Chorizo, proudly made from pork farmed right here in NZ, the freedom way - without crates, cages or sad concrete pens. For a long time, consumers have pleaded for a local alternative to the plethora of imported chorizo in the market. With growing consumer awareness of country of origin in the smallgoods category, it’s a great time to have local options in your fridges.

Freedom Farms Smoked Pork Chorizo is carefully blended with heaps of sweet and smoky Spanish paprika, cured and naturally smoked. The result is a flavour lover’s delight - think sizzled with Sunday eggs, tossed in a big pasta salad, on the BBQ with fresh seafood or in summer tapas with roast potatoes and a big dollop of aioli. Delightful.

Available in a tidy 200g twin pack – easy as. To find out more visit www.freedomfarms.co.nz or email us@freedomfarms.co.nz
