Delmaine Fine Foods - European Inspired, New Zealand Owned
Delmaine Trading Company Limited was established in 1980 to take advantage of the untapped potential for high quality European food products. Beginning with olives and sundried tomatoes (common in Europe, but virtually unknown in New Zealand at the time) our range of unique foods has built up over the last 30 years to now appear in over thirty-five food categories.
As the more modern Delmaine Fine Foods we have consistently increased our range of imported products while at the same time adding manufactured fresh products to the range. This ongoing growth means we are now one of New Zealand's leading suppliers of food products to top hotels, restaurants and cafes, as well as all major supermarket chains.
The Delmaine Fine Foods imported range has grown over the last three decades to include not only a wide variety of olives and pickles, but an assortment of other delicious products including baked goods, rice, tinned tomatoes & beans, mustards, oils and vinegars. All of our European partners are dedicated food manufacturers and we will continue to build on these and any new partnerships necessary to bring the best of Europe to NZ.
In New Zealand we have two specialised production facilities making a wide range of fresh foods. Aside from our well known range of filled and flat, fresh egg pastas we also produce fresh and shelf stable sauces, fresh soup, ready to eat meals and pestos.
As we move through our third decade of providing New Zealand with innovative and delicious products, we have no intention of slowing down. We understand that the key to our customers enjoying food is in offering quality, authentic ingredients and inviting them to use their imagination. We have a dedicated team of chefs and technologists researching and developing new products and recipes on a full time basis.
As a country we are acquiring more adventurous culinary tastes and an increased interest in how other people dine. Equally importantly we have an increasing understanding of what makes a product the best for using in new recipes. Things like quality, versatility and knowing that what you use is the same as the original are vital. By combining the traditional tastes of Europe with the latest in culinary enhancement Delmaine has created a range of premium fine foods that can be used for any dining occasion.
With this heightened awareness of the fine art of cooking comes a greater demand for suppliers, like Delmaine, to provide a superior definitive range. With a thirty year history of supplying the best foods and ingredients we are confident of meeting these demands now and in the future. This future is based on the critical success factors in the development of Delmaine's business; dedication to quality, commitment to serving customer's needs and the expertise of key people within the company.
