Here at I Love Food Co we want to create delicious food, food that we can be proud of, real food with great quality ingredients that we are happy to give our own family and friends.
Our food is made like you would at home - with ingredients that you would find in your pantry. We use only the best quality ingredients and we never use any weird E numbers or preservatives - our ingredient lists don’t look like NASA space experiments!
We started out in 2008 at our local Farmers Market where we first baked some pies using our special sour cream pastry. We made 100 pies and to our delight they sold out in under an hour. From our humble farmers market beginnings, we are chuffed to now be stocked in supermarkets nationwide as well as exporting our goods to the world! The I LOVE PIES range has also expanded to include delicious fruit pies and sausage rolls.
Recently I LOVE BAKING was born out of our desire to create a better biscuit that was as delicious and wholesome as you would bake at home. Our cookies are very different to other store bought brands as they contain no palm oil - instead we use butter, as well as unrefined sugar, wholegrain oats and 20% of the sweetness comes from the natural goodness of dates – which we think is pretty rad!
In 2018 we became a Corporate Sponsor for Heart Kids NZ, a charity that supports children and families who are affected by childhood heart defects, right across NZ. The pies and cookies we are supplying to Heart Kids will go a little way in helping support the families Heart Kids works with. We also support this organisation through team-based fundraising events, which are a lot of fun while also helping raise money for this well-deserving organisation.
It’s a joy to create beautiful food for busy families and we want to say a big thanks to everyone who has supported us so far on our journey. Happy Eating!
