The Hellers story
The Hellers family tradition goes way, way back to the 1880s when gold was aplenty, and miners needed to be fed. That’s where Gorg Heller came in. Emigrating from Germany, he supplied the gold miners with top quality smallgoods from his shop in Arrowtown.

Keeping the tradition going
Fast forward to 1985 when Todd Heller continued the long line of butchers by opening his very first butchery in Christchurch. Inspired by his world travels, Todd began offering Kiwi’s flavours they’d never tried before. And they quickly fell in love with Hellers. Since then, Hellers has continued to grow and they now supply their delicious products throughout the whole of New Zealand, from supermarkets, cafes, restaurants and more. 

A passion for flavour
Driven by a passion for delivering both classic flavours and innovative new tastes to Kiwis everywhere, Hellers is NZ’s leading brand of sausages, deli meats, bacon, ham and much more. Hellers are proud as punch to be New Zealand's butcher and you can find a great range of Hellers goodies at FreshChoice stores throughout New Zealand.
