Maison Therese is bringing the taste of summer to New Zealanders with large 1kg jars of Pickled Onions and Pickled Gherkins now available in more supermarkets throughout New Zealand.
The flagship range from Maison Therese has been a mainstay of Kiwi summer snacking for over 50 years, since Therese Mooren started preserving New Zealand produce in her Hawke’s Bay home.
Now known as the home of artistic preserves, Maison Therese has become a successful family business, while still preserving the best of summer produce the same traditional way.
“Oma’s recipe for Pickled Onions and Gherkins hasn’t changed because we know it works.” says Emma, third generation in the Maison Therese family business.
“We still make our own spicy blend of vinegar, hand-peel the onions, and hand-pack the jars ourselves.”
Now the Sales & Marketing Manager for the company, Emma has grown the family business along with her sister and mother, bringing their family recipes to more New Zealanders. Under the Maison Therese label, they produce a mix of modern and traditional pickles, relishes, chutneys that add real flavour to everyday meals and snacks.
All Maison Therese products including Pickled Onions and Gherkins are free from preservatives and colours.
Maison Therese 1kg Pickled Gherkins and Pickled Onions are available in supermarkets and specialty food stores around the country including Countdown, selected New World and Pak’n’Save stores, Moore Wilson, Farro Fresh and Farmland Rural Trading Stores.
About Maison Therese
Maison Therese was founded in 1965 by Therese Mooren, who emigrated to New Zealand from Holland more than 50 years ago. She started producing in her kitchen at home, that is how the name ‘Maison Therese’ was derived, ‘Maison’ meaning ‘the house’. Maison Therese is still owned and run by the family, including daughter Monique Bradshaw and granddaughters Emma Bradshaw and Kate Bradshaw.
The Maison Therese brand has since expanded to include other products and target other markets, all made to Maison Therese’s recipes.
