Nourish Beef Jerky brings to market a product that indulges the inner-foodie. Nourish has taken New Zealand free-range, grass-fed beef, marinated it in with a selection of the finest herbs and spices to bring you a range of succulent jerky that is full of flavour.

Nourish's experience with jerky manufacturing and close customer relationships means its jerky has been developed in line with three key market trends:

  • Food Awareness: consumers are more conscious about what they eat, where it comes from and how it is made. They want locally sourced products that are safe to eat.
  • Taste is so important in ensuring a repeat purchase. Nourish flavours have been formulated to be punchy and authentic. As well as taste, the texture is equally important - the team at Nourish found that a moderately soft jerky is more popular than a traditional hard jerky.
  • Feel Good: Nourish knows that consumers are looking for products that they feel good about eating. Its jerky is naturally preserved and free from artificial flavours and MSG.
