Life Health Foods continues to grow

In light of increasing demand for Life Health Foods products, we’re excited to announce that we’re embarking on a building expansion project. The new site – right next door to the current Avondale offices and factory – will be developed over a two to three year period.

It will add new space for production as Life Health Foods supplies more overseas markets as well as increased demand in New Zealand. Along with an investment in new equipment, the site will also comprise of offices and chilled warehousing. Watch this page for progress updates on our expansion project.

Good Enough for Grandma

This winter, Naked Locals launched a search to find two Grandmas to be our soup ambassadors. We were inspired by the insight that Naked Locals are hearty, wholesome soups, just like Grandma makes. We had an amazing response, with around 80 applicants over the Naked Cuisine Facebook page – and we’re excited to announce our two winners – Trudy Longson, from Christchurch, and Heather Williams, from Gisborne.

Keep an eye out on the Naked Cuisine Facebook page for updates on their travels – including a visit to the Life Health Foods Auckland factory, as well as their local farms, to learn about the process of making Naked Locals soup. We’ll also be out and about all over New Zealand this winter giving a locals a chance to try our soups – check out our Naked Cuisine Facebook page for updates.

The latest addition to Bean Supreme’s Wholefood Café Range has just hit supermarket shelves – a wonderfully fragrant Masala Burger made with chickpeas, cauliflower and ancient grains, blended with turmeric, cumin and ginger. Finished with a touch of green chilli for flavour, this recipe is mild and perfect for the whole family. The burger, like the Bean Supreme Kumara Burger which won in last year’s New Zealand Food Awards, has a 4.5 health star rating – making it healthy as well as delicious!

Naked Cuisine’s new winter flavours

The on-trend Naked Kitchen Vietnamese Pho Noodle Soup combines mint, coriander, mushrooms, crunchy water chestnuts, carrots and spinach, and includes both rice noodles and sweet potato noodles.
