Health and Nutrition




Founded in 2013, Ready to Eat has a strong understanding of the hectic and full lifestyles kiwi’s face every day.  Busy work, Family and life commitments leave little time for looking after health and Nutrition.

Our mission is to create innovative heat and eat meal solutions for people looking for convenience and health.  We have challenged the traditional convenience food offerings and today we are market leaders in our industry.

Based out of our state of the art Hamilton production facility, which was purpose built in Late 2017, our team of 50+ hold expertise in all areas required to develop, manufacture and distribute our high quality unique product offerings direct to our customers doorstep.  Our products are made fresh and using modified atmospheric packaging machinery we can achieve an extended refrigerated shelf life of up to 10 days.

We are always innovating and improving both our products and services to make our customers experience as enjoyable as possible. We are honoured to be finalists in the 2018 NZ Food awards in the chilled food and business innovation categories.

Food safety is of paramount importance to us so we take every reasonable step to ensure our food quality and safety is as high level as possible.  We operate under a custom food plan which is monitored and audited by the Ministry of Primary Industries.

We produce both in house brands and also contract manufacture on behalf of other companies.  We believe the key to our success has been in the relationship building directly with our customer base, listening to their feedback and going the extra mile to make sure that we exceed expectations.

With 457% growth rate in 2017/18 we have proven we have the capabilities to lead this fast moving sector in the surging convenience food market and are well equipped to handle similar further growth over the next few years.

This heavy growth has been recognised as the 13th fastest growing company in NZ in the Deloitte Fast 50 index for 2018.

A strong culture heavily focused on customer experience and interaction is complimented by an internal focus on staff upskilling and mentoring.  We empathise with our customers day to day challenge as we are all customers ourselves.  We get it.

Ready to eat is more than a food production company.  We empower our customers to affect real change in their life.  Authentic, transparent and realists – we are proud of what we do.  We are Hungry and Ready to Eat.
