Pascal was born & grew up in the South of France and moved to New Zealand in 2003
By 2007, inspired by his craving for his grandmother's traditional preserve porc pâté, he managed to glean the secret recipe from 'Grand-mere' and started making it at home for his own consumption.
In 2013 the opportunity arose for Pascal to work full time on making this business a reality (easier said than done!)
Following the preserve method and tradition of his grandmother, flavours are kept to their original taste without using preservatives or additives.
Now you can experience this unique to New Zealand product,'kiwi-ised' by utilising only stunning NZ fresh pork.
