Award Winning Bramble Berries

We were delighted to have three products in the finals this year (Squeezed Rhubarb and Raspberry with Rosehip fruit syrup, NZ Blueberries with Cranberries and NZ Seedless Bramble Berries fruit preserve).

Michael was interviewed after the awards and chuckled “Over the past three years our products have been finalists about seven times, so it’s really nice to be get up on stage and to finally nail one for the team! Everyone is really thrilled back in Geraldine.”

And we certainly are!

Barker's NZ Seedless Bramble Berries fruit preserveOur NZ Seedless Bramble Berries preserve is a blend of New Zealand Blackberries and Boysenberries and is healthier alternative to jam. We’ve talked to our customers and by taking out 17% of the sugar and replacing it with 20% more fruit, it really allows the subtlety of the fruit flavours to come through.

Our award winning NZ Seedless Bramble Berries preserve is available in New World and Pak’n Save supermarkets, and on our online shop for New Zealand wide delivery.
