About Delmaine

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.

Delmaine and the Writers and Readers Festival

The Auckland Writers & Readers Festival was born of a desire to celebrate and promote literacy, reading, writing and ideas in Auckland. A community of writers, booksellers, publishers and avid readers invested grass roots enthusiasm into what has become an eagerly anticipated annual event.

Three annual festivals in 1999, 2000 and 2001 ran largely on volunteer horsepower before The Auckland Writers and Readers Festival Charitable Trust was formed in 2001, and an endowment fund initiated with the support of Foundation Patrons.

The festival went biennial as it built resources: the 2003 and 2005 festivals grew in scope and audience numbers before the event returned to its annual roots in 2006.

Over eleven years, more than 151,000 people have attended the festival, from an audience of around 5,000 at the first festival in 1999 to over 31,000 in 2011. A consistently growing audience has taken the festival to heart, as have over 1,100 writers, including over two hundred international writers who have visited Auckland specifically for the event.

Delmaine have been proud to support the Festival for over 10 years, supplying both financial assistance and foods and beverages for the various programmes. Visit the festival on
