Service Foods

At Better

Balars Wholefoods, Leonard's, Wild Acre Farms, First Catch, Essentials, The Dairy Shed, Farm Fresh, and Raw Earth are eight brands that we personally endorse. They are exclusive to Service Foods and each one is produced to the highest standard and designed to cater to the current New Zealand demands. Service Foods is not just the distributor of these brands, but also the creator and chaperone of each label's entire process from farm to plate.

You can see these ethics yourself by visiting any one of our farms, and you can taste the difference in every meat we produce

Our connection with the sea is emotional; seafood is a reminder of who we are as a nation and how lucky we are to live here. So if you want to sell seafood to New Zealanders it has to be good.
