Our story began as a family-run business back in 1980 and has since grown into a company that provides top quality, convenient, fresh, nutritional meal solutions for all Kiwis.
Today, we have a market leading range of trusted brands that reflect our commitment and passion for great quality, delicious flavours and environmental sustainability.
We love what we do and it shows in every pack!
We only use farm-fresh produce, grown locally in the best New Zealand soils by the finest growers we know and trust. It’s one of the ways we support local people, local businesses and local communities.
Why import from overseas when it’s all right here on your doorstep?
Pride in our Brands
We hope you love our products as much as we do. That’s because when you pick one of our brands from the shelf, not only have you chosen a quality product at a great price, you’ve selected one that is made with pride by the many people we work with – all through our business. What more could we ask for? Look out for them on your supermarket shelves.

“Our Creed and Values”
Our Creed & Values are behind everything we do at Golden State Foods. These aren’t just words, they aren’t just a mission statement, they are a way of living, a way of doing business, and a reflection of the positive change that we would like to see in the world.
We believe in God and the dignity of all people.
We believe that people should be treated as we would like to be treated, and this applies to all of our associates, their families, our customers and suppliers, and to all others with whom we do business.
We believe that successful independent business is the backbone of nations, and that our success is dependent upon the success of our customers, and that only by working together can the ultimate success of all partners be assured.
We, therefore, dedicate ourselves to work for our mutual success and pledge our best efforts always toward the attainment of our common goals.
Treat others like you want to be treated.
Make the best product.
Give the customers a fair deal.
Maintain the highest standards.
