The special care we take

Gourmet Direct only works with trusted suppliers with established reputations for quality in New Zealand (and often International) food market.

Gourmet Direct chilled or frozen meat products are already aged and vacuum packed for maximum flavour, texture and shelf life. Each product is manufactured to a strict specification delivering you consistently stunning product every time.

Our frozen products are snap frozen to swiftly seal in the natural properties of the meat guaranteeing your defrosted product is in mint condition. Slow freezing in your domestic freezer can dry and stress meat fibres by comparison.

Every order is packed by hand with large, reusable gel icepacks to ensure your package travels safely with the least possible temperature fluctuation.

We deliver Nationwide within New Zealand 5 days a week.  We regret that owing to MAF regulations, we are unable to send meat products overseas. For a range of fabulous gifts to send Worldwide please visit our www.atasteofnz.co.nz for plenty of New Zealand gifts to send to corporate colleagues and loved ones overseas.
