Holy smoke! Kiwi’s love the smoky flavour of smoked food so we were particularly excited to hear about Wholesmoked NZ.
Wholesmoked NZ are specialist food producers based in Tauranga. They produce award-winning smoked cheese using unique methodology to produce Manuka and Pohutukawa smoked cheese.
Wholesmoked use real woodsmoke to impart a recognisable smokey flavour to many cheese varieties in commercial quantities.
They currently supply over 50 specialist outlets in both the North and South island.
Wholesmoked cheese is encased in mineral wax packaging and their labelling lends an artisan-produced feel.
Some of their more unique products lines include Manuka smoked black peppercorns which have a wonderful aroma, and smoked sundried tomatoes which have three times the flavour of normal sundried tomato. Both these products have a long shelf life so so you won`t feel you have to use them all up at once… although we suspect you`ll love them so much you will anyway! The company also plans to include a smoked salt to their product list.
Wholesmoked products are available at both the Tauranga and Mt Maunganui Farmers Markets plus at over 50 specialist retail outlets nationwide. To find a retailer near you phone: (07) 579 9394
