How We Began
Two farming friends from North Canterbury, New Zealand were faced with a surplus harvest back in the summer of 1996. They got together to preserve their delicious summer fruits using old family recipes and turn the robust flavors into something truly sensational. Those first fruit pastes awakened taste buds, as well as long-forgotten food traditions, and set the stage for our full line of products and flavors.
Here at Rutherford & Meyer, we truly care about what we put into our bodies. We insist on using only 100% natural ingredients across our range to bring flavors to life and add a little excitement to any gathering. Our world-famous fruit pastes have long been a cheeseboard must-have whilst our range of wafers, crackers and spreads provide the highest quality snacks and accompaniments.
We must all do our part to take care of our environment. The problem of food-waste and reliance on resources places strain on our environment. Our Upcycled Grain Project takes the leftover grain from the brewing process and turns it into a range of delicious on-the-go snacks. By Upcycling leftover grain we reduce our reliance on new resources and pressure on the environment.
