Hellers have an onsite shop, selling direct to the public, its a great way to get some yummy bargains.
The Heller family tradition of butcheries began when Gorg Heller emigrated from Germany to New Zealand during the gold rush of the 1880’s and started supplying the gold miners with smallgoods from a small shop in Arrowtown.
Todd Heller continued the long line of butchers by opening his first butchery in New Brighton, Christchurch, in 1985. Inspired by his travels and the cooking styles of different cultures, Todd began offering greater variety and new flavours – very little of which were available at the time. His customers responded well. Todd Heller Meats started supplying supermarkets, outgrew the old factory, moved to a new plant at Kaiapoi and began supplying throughout the South Island.
The company continued to flourish and after merging with Tasty Bacon became Heller Tasty Limited. The purchase of Vienna Sensational Foods gave the company national distribution and in 2002, Heller’s Sensational London Pride sausage was judged New Zealand’s best.
In 2008, Hellers won the Supreme Sausage award with Hellers Cheese Kransky and the 100% NZ Bacon of the year award with Hellers Middle Eye bacon. In May 2011 Hellers launched its Free Farmed Bacon and in the 100% NZ bacon awards of the same year won gold with its Middle Eye and silver with Middle and Ribeye Bacon.
Today over 400 staff can produce up to 350 tonnes of sausages in 80 different varieties a week along with bacon, ham and other service deli smallgoods.
