Nothing but Nature.
Premium Game is a licensed supplier of 100% Wild Game Meat which has been harvested and processed in the most natural way.
Brothers Darren and Nick Clifford share a family passion for field to plate food experiences. They hand harvest Wild Game with registered hunters and lead a team of traditionally skilled Butchers to deliver culinary wild meat for Chefs and Home Cooks.
Premium Game Meat is naturally tender and superior in delicate flavours from the high country of New Zealand’s South Island. Audited by AsureQuality each animal is traced back to the land from which it was harvested to ensure there has been no exposure to GMO's, Hormones or Antibiotics.
Our Wild Game meat is processed, packed and labelled at our purpose-built facility under a Risk Management Program audited by the Ministry for Primary Industries; guaranteeing full tractability throughout the process.
Darren, Sarah, Nick & Bekka Clifford are now the new owners of Premium Game. We will now be trading as Premium Game 2018 Ltd.
We are excited about the future of Premium Game and look forward to building on the existing business and bringing innovation to the current range of product and services.
Coming from an agricultural background - Darren & Nick are both passionate foodies who love working with exquisite ingredients, to create memorable food experiences, and share a vision of delivering a ‘field to plate’ experience and producing culinary meats - to empower and enable customers to utilise this natural resource.
Several of the existing staff have been retained within our team, and we look forward to welcoming new team members over the coming months. We endeavor to contact all existing suppliers and customers and look forward to discussing future opportunities.
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 still be greeted by one of the directors themselves.
It's one of those 'kiwi ingenuity' stories
…picture a 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 natural 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.
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.
