It’s one of those great ‘Kiwi Ingenuity’ stories…
..…picture the scene back in 1994 when four Marlborough recreational hunters contemplated why the people of NZ couldn’t enjoy the many benefits and unique flavours of naturally wild game meats as they and their families could. With plenty of discussion they decided; if it could be done, why not them?
The four hunters worked, literally, from the ground up on the purpose built factory, meeting every one of the stringent regulations and guidelines from NZFA, MAF and the Marlborough District Council.
In 1996 their hard work came to fruition when Premium Game became a licensed supplier of processed wild game including venison, goat, pork, rabbit, fallow, hare, tahr, wallaby and arapawa sheep.
Premium Game's main priorities have always been producing outstanding quality products, selling and promoting a unique New Zealand product and maximising the potential of this fast growing niche market.
Premium Game prides itself on the personal, down to earth yet highly professional manner in which the company operates and works hard to maintain this, despite the massive growth the business has encountered. Most times when you contact the factory, you will be greeted by one of the directors themselves.
These factors have not gone un-noticed and some of the ‘strings’ to Premium Game’s ‘bow’ include:
