Te Horo Foods does it again!

Te Horo Foods does it again!


Hot on the heels of winning the 2014 MiNDFOOD Wellington on a Plate established producer of the year, Te Horo foods has been named as a finalist in the prestigious 2014 New Zealand Food Awards.

Recognising excellence, The New Zealand Food Awards, in association with Massey University, recognise innovation and excellence by our largest export sector.

Popular Kapiti Coast business, Te Horo foods is the only Kapiti Coast business making the list of Finalists. There were 102 entries submitted by 31 companies vying for the top honours across 13 categories.

The finalists were announced at a cocktail evening hosted at Villa Maria Wines Estate in Auckland on Thursday 4 September.

Judge Ray McVinnie says that of the wide range of entries submitted, his tastebuds kept tingling at traditionally-based foods.

“I think the best food products always have some connection to tradition. People who are completely familiar with the rules before they break them often seem to make the best stuff. Food like this, I am sure, will become future mainstream kiwi products and are a credit to intelligent producers.”

Te Horo Foods founder, Tim Gibbs said: “being a finalist in The NZ Foods Awards is a great achievement for our company. What it gives us is independent recognition that our Jams and Marmalades are up there with the best food products in NZ. It also helps us to play our part in telling the Kapiti Coast story”

Founded in 2010, Te Horo foods has won a number of awards

In 2010, Te Horo foods won the Regional Branding and Promotion category award in the Kapiti Horowhenua Business Awards. In the same year Te Horo Foods was presented the New Zealand Foods Awards Grocer's Choice Award and in 2012, Te Horo foods’ popular Raspberry Jam won the Cuisine Artisan award.

And what a run. This week Te Horo Foods was also named as a finalist in The Electra Kapiti Horowhenua Business Awards small business excellence category.

ENDS.
