has moved production from Albany to Glenfield.Hendersons is well known in New Zealand for its naturally cured bacon without
chemicals, preservatives, colours and without added water. All products are
smoked on Manuka wood which gives Hendersons products the unique, authentic
flavour. Bacon – the way it used to be!Harald Georg, Director of Hendersons Fine Foods, explains Hendersons philosophy:

week to reach their full flavour.
The result is obvious when the consumer cooks
the product – bacon with water and chemicals take longer to cook, release water
in the bacon and don’t get crispy.
