Pure nature, a land of sheep and kiwi’s house pop up in my mind when someone talks about an island nation in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. And it’s undeniable that New Zealand is home to these incredible creations. However, thanks to New Zealand Trade & Enterprise (NZTE), I’ve recognised that New Zealand has over 100 years of experience in food production, science and exporting quality dairy products as well. And here are 5 NZ products you should try.
#1 Olivado Avocado Oil
Olivado’s Extra Virgin Cold-Pressed Avocado Oil is one of the healthiest edible oils in the world, with each bottle presenting a smooth and mild taste of ripe Hass avocado. It contains no trans fats, additives, preservatives or artificial ingredients. It’s perfect for gentle heating in a frying pan as well as high heat of up to 255°C.
#2 Pic’s Peanut Butter
As New Zealand’s most beloved peanut butter brand, Pic’s gives us a delicious, all-natural and highly nutritious peanut butter, made with two ingredients: peanuts and sea salt. The peanuts are Aussie’s legendary hi-oleic nuts, fresh roasted and lovingly squashed in sunny Nelson, NZ.
#3 Rockit Apples
Rockit is the world’s first specially bred miniature ‘high quality’ apple, making them perfect as a health snack. Orchard locations are carefully selected based on optimum temperatures and soil richness to produce the best quality Rockit apples possible.
#4 Whitestone Cheese Co.
Whitestone makes artisan, world class cheeses and butter that come from premium grass fed milk. The subtle flavors of Whitestone’s cheeses reflect the quality of the land, grass, and water that gave rise to them.
#5 Airborne Honey
Airborne honey is New Zealand’s oldest, most trusted honey brand. It is the only honey brand that can verify the honey is true to label, undamaged by heat and traceable to the beehive with the world’s first Honest, Undamaged and Traceable label.
