We work with over 250 regional kiwi produce growers and farmers who supply us with the freshest produce and free-range or free farmed products.
On average, 97% of our produce is sourced from New Zealand. There is some produce we cannot source in NZ, like rice, tropical fruits or ginger, which represents the other 2%. However, we're not letting that stop us! We have been working with local growers on initiatives to bring produce which has never before been grown in New Zealand here, to provide our foodies with more innovative and new recipes and to provide New Zealand farms with awesome new opportunities.
Through supporting this local grower innovation we guarantee the purchase of these trial crops if they are successful (in some instances we fund the seeds for these crops). These crops are unique and different for our foodies, keeping our bags innovative and interesting.
My Food Bag is the largest procurer of free farmed pork in New Zealand and the third largest free range chicken purchaser. Suppliers who started with us five years ago are growing alongside us and we are proud to be making a difference to businesses nationwide.
