Food Hugger Gourmet

Food Hugger Gourmet makes hand-crafted small batch apple butters, chutneys, mustards as well as authentic American BBQ sauces & rubs. We use all fresh New Zealand ingredients with no additives, or preservatives.

Like many entrepreneurs affected by Covid, we closed our travel design firm in
2020 and wondered what was next. Next to travel, food was one of our biggest passions. After making a batch of Apple Butter that our friends went crazy over, what started off as a “could we,” was replaced with ”Lets do it!”

In September 2021 Food Hugger Gourmet was born. Our products now include:

  • Apple Butters: Traditional and Manuka Smoked
  • Chutneys: Apple Walnut, Apple Ginger, Apple Beetroot
  • American Inspired BBQ Sauces and Rubs: Texas, Memphis, Kansas City and Carolina Style
  • Mustards: Yellow, Brown and Beetroot
