About Us

We are a manufacturer of premium dairy and selected non-dairy products and are Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI) registered for supply to the domestic and export markets.

We use Grass-fed, New Zealand Creamery butter which is - in our opinion - the best butter in the world and ensures the highest quality of our products from the very beginning.

We supply our products to airline caterers, hotels, bakeries, food manufacturers, restaurants and supermarkets either directly or through distributors in New Zealand, Australia, the Pacific Islands, and a number of Asian and Middle Eastern countries.

Our products are manufactured under the registered Canary™ brand as well as contract manufacturing for internationally recognised third party brands.


We are food innovators, making food fabulous


We work with our customers to design and develop products that will have a specific form, flavour or function. e.g. we can emboss Canary Butter Medallions with a customer’s logo or manufacture a sauce in a frozen portion, shaped to meet a customer’s specific application.

Our particular strength is in value added butter products. Our range of innovative and often unique butter products are designed and manufactured to meet customer’s requirements, which may include a particular size or shape, functional performance or a cost reduction.
