• New The Good Taste Company Soups of the World

Our name says it all

Life’s too short not to eat great food. So if you love lively flavours that make you go “WOW” with every mouthful, let The Good Taste Company™ soups, specialty dips, hummus and Double-Ups add a burst of pleasure to your day.

Our story

It’s 1990. A revolution is gaining momentum in Kiwi kitchens around the country. Meat and three veg is giving way to more adventurous tastes and flavours inspired by international cuisine. Chef Jonathon Bisley answers the call for pre-prepared, great tasting, restaurant quality products and The Good Taste Company™ is born. It starts with delicious chilled soups, then in 2009 the La Bonne Cuisine™ range of quality dips and hummus joins the line-up … and the rest, as they say, is history.

Goodness Guaranteed

We believe in the goodness of real food.
Food made from good, honest ingredients just tastes better. And great tasting food is one of life’s real pleasures.
So if, for any reason, your Good Taste experience isn’t completely enjoyable, let us know so we can put it right.
The Good Taste Company™. Goodness Guaranteed.
