OUR STORY

Wild Country Fine Foods (NZ) Ltd commenced operation in 1995. It all started with using interesting bottles for flavoured olive oils and vinegars.

Wild Country expanded its operation in 2000 with their purpose built commercial kitchen based in rural Waikato and became a leading condiments manufacturer with a range of chutneys, jams, marmalatas, dressings, sauces and aiolis.

In 2011 Wild Country introduced a second brand, 362 GRILLHOUSE which quickly gained market share in specialty food retail stores.

Wild Country products are sold nationally & overseas and use only the best ingredients.

Angelique and her husband Stephen still maintain a hands on approach with manufacturing, recipe development and customer service.

We hope you enjoy exploring the range of products and recipe ideas on this site and enjoy the Wild Country & 362 Grillhouse taste experience by purchasing our products from a stockist near you or buy on line and we can ship to you anywhere in the world!
