The Auckland Food Show

The Auckland Food Show

Published on 16/08/2018

Being at the Auckland Food Show was a great experience. We were able to show case our products and company to the Auckland market. It was very exciting. Over four days the show visitors sampled over 120kgs of meat, 15kgs of smoked cheese and 10kgs of smoked butter! The positive responses from everyone was overwhelming - we even had one poor lady burst into happy tears when she tried the Smoked Beef Brisket  - it was an emotional experience. 

Most of the time we had queues of 20 to 30 people at our stand wanting to sample and purchase products. This just blew us away. 

We took two big pallet loads of product to the show to sell. We thought it was better to be over stocked than to run out. We ran of our smoked butter, this just flew of the shelves and was very popular. We loved the reactions on people’s faces when they tried it and the sweet smoke flavour emerged when they were eating it. We asked one lady what she would put the smoked butter on and she replied ”EVERYTHING”.
 
Stocks of the Premium Beef and Pork, Pork Belly, Beef Brisket and smoked cheese quickly dwindled over the four days and we were getting quite worried that we would run out.
 
All our team says a big thank you to the people of Auckland for the support over the course of the event and for showing us a great time at the show. For us it was quite a humbling experience and one we will remember for many years. We are looking forward to coming back and seeing everyone at the event again.
 
Auckland, you blew us away with you passion for great food and great times!
