Our fantastic planters are busy planting our plants. After a hectic apple picking season in Hastings, our merry team of planters are giving it all to get the plants in the ground before heading home.
We are absolutely 100% focused on handling our fruit with the utmost of care to reduce bruising. So you, the customer, consistently get the best quality fruit, our strawberries & blueberries only ever receive the most gentle of handling; we pick, grade and pack our berries very, very carefully. Our berries are hand-picked and packed every day so you can get freshest produce possible.
Gala Berry is one of the largest strawberry producers in New Zealand and the biggest commercial produce grower in Omaha Flats, North Auckland. We also grow blueberries.
We grow our strawberries & blueberries on the premium soils of Omaha flats on the edge of the sea by a natural estuary. Omaha’s high sunshine hours mean our berries are chock-full of sun ripened goodness you can really taste; juicy sunshine in a bite.
We love our strawberries and are very proud of our company and of our reputation as a premium berry grower with a name for superior-quality, delicious products. We grow environmentally sustainable strawberries with care and then pick them with pride.
Fresh Food Exports has grown quality produce at Omaha flats for over 25 years so when we say we know how to grow delicious, juicy strawberries and get them to you fresh and in premium condition, then you can believe us. We are passionate about our strawberries and hope you will be too.
We have included some of our favourite recipes for drinks, nibbles and salads that all use strawberries.
These are some of our tried and true recipes that come out every summer. I don’t think summer in our house would be quite the same without strawberries on our nibbles and dinner menus. We hope you enjoy these recipes as much as we do and don’t forget you can always email us with your premium strawberry recipes.
