Based in the heart of the Waikato, Southern Fresh Foods are New Zealand’s professional growers of specialty vegetables, gourmet leaf salads and fresh herbs.

The Hautapu-based business was created in 2000 and is in a prime location for national distribution. They are making an impact by establishing themselves as a trusted brand within the industry.

“Our quality is what differentiates us from our competitors,” says managing director Pat Dunn. Pat started the business alongside Jeremy Dunn with what they call their three vital ingredients – quality, freshness and flavour. It is these foundations which contribute to the main goal of providing their clientele with inspirational cuisine solutions.

With more than 30 years of growing experience, the family-owned business has turned into a leader amongst New Zealand’s growers and processors. It is the family aspect of the Southern Fresh Foods which makes them so authentic, according to Pat.

Another reason customers love Southern Fresh Foods is the customer service which they provide. This service is second to none and is focused around “100% product satisfaction – every time!” The value which is provided through service is what really differentiates Southern Fresh Foods from its competition.

The Southern Fresh Foods team’s passion for food does not stop there. In partnering with Bidvest Hamilton, Southern Fresh Foods is also giving back to the community. Any extra product that is not fit for sale but is good for eating is sent to the Kaivolution Project. This project distributes that food to charities in need. It is a partnership which Southern Fresh Foods have fostered, and is something that he feels passionately for. “No food should be wasted, and nobody should be without.”

The range which Southern Fresh Foods offers its customers is second to none and includes aa large variety of baby vegetables, salads, herbs and specialty vegetables. If you are looking for the best quality produce in New Zealand, contact the professional growers at Southern Fresh Foods today.
