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. So you can trust that we take our meat seriously. Everything we do, from our bacon to our sausages, is the best quality to the very last bite.

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 we now supply our delicious products throughout the whole of New Zealand, from supermarkets, cafes, restaurants and more. Not to mention you’ll find us on Australian shelves, and in parts of the Pacific too!

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. We’re proud as punch to be New Zealand’s butcher.
