Tatua’s Cooking Cream has won the prestigious New Zealand Food Award in the chilled category.
The New Zealand Food Awards celebrate New Zealand manufactured products, focusing on innovation and excellence. The
winning products earn the New Zealand Food Award’s quality mark to highlight the superiority of their products. The
awards were announced at the New Zealand Foods Awards Gala event on 23 October in Auckland.
“This win highlights Tatua’s commitment to quality and innovation by offering specialised food and ingredients
solutions” says Hayes Taylor, Tatua Foods Business Manager. “Our focus is on developing high-quality, innovative
products that have excellent functional properties”.
Tatua’s Cooking Cream is a pre-reduced cream that was initially developed for professional chefs and commercial
kitchens. Its excellent coating and heat stability properties means it does not require further reduction and this has
the benefit of saving on cooking time. “We recognised that this was a product that would be useful to in home chefs too
and was a natural extension to our existing retail range of premium creams, which includes Mascarpone, Crème Fraiche and
Sour Cream. We launched Tatua Cooking Cream into supermarkets earlier this year when we rebranded and relaunched our
retail and foodservice products in new packaging” says Taylor.
The relaunch of Tatua’s premium creams range also introduced new resealable packaging for the brand. This new packaging
format improves and extends in-home usage and reduces wastage.
The Tatua speciality cream range featuring Tatua’s Cooking Cream can be found in New World, Pak n Save and Countdown
stores. Tatua’s Cooking Cream is also available in 1kg and 10 litre formats for foodservice customers.
