Taste Matters: Delicatessen, Invercargill

Major Suppliers

Havoc Pork Products set out “To cut out the middle man. To let people taste the difference. To do it right.” They wanted to make sure that Havoc Pork was Free Range, Anti-biotic free, Out-door, Right on and Utterly Delicious. They succeeded, supplying from paddock to plate with heads held high. The people, magazines, television shows and chefs nationwide have agreed on the sublime flavour and as for the pigs themselves, well, they’re all over the place, but every night they go back to their own huts.

The pigs are grown on Havoc Farm in Hunter, South Canterbury. 15 minutes from the farm they get turned into beautiful bacon, sausages and gourmet cuts of pork in the Havoc Factory, Belt Street Waimate. Every part of the process is a hands-on endeavour. It was a radical concept but the proof is in the eating of superior pork products. Good for us, kind to the animal.


Allpress Espresso began in 1986 when Michael Allpress established one of New Zealand’s first espresso coffee companies, roasting coffee to supply local cafes. From the very beginning of roasting coffee Michael made a decision to concentrate on flavour, so everything from selecting green beans to choosing the roasting method is all about providing the best tasting, fresh roasted coffee for cafe owners and coffee lovers.

Not all coffees are created equal so they only source the highest quality available. They trade with small estates and co-ops that are sustainably managed with high standards of agricultural practice and who demonstrate social and economic return to their communities. They have direct relationships with these growers and exporters and by virtue of the quality of their product and farming methods pay the premium price they rightly command for their coffee. Fluidised hot air roasters suspend the beans in a stream of hot air, which means that temperature can be controlled with great precision. The beans roast more evenly with no risk of scorching or tainting from residual smoke. Roasting this way consistently produces cleaner, sweeter tasting coffee and delivers a superior taste.
