If you have taken responsibility for a rural delivery, against our advice, we will be unable to refund or replace products spoiled due to delivery delays.

Rural post carries the rural courier parcels and the drivers make only one run per day, this means the driver only has to meet a three day delivery window with ALL the freight they carry.

To avoid this occurrence, we recommend you take the advice of our experienced customer service staff and arrange delivery to an urban address.


Gourmet Direct only works with trusted suppliers with established reputations for quality in New Zealand (and often International) food market.

Gourmet Direct chilled or frozen meat products are already aged and vacuum packed for maximum flavour, texture and shelf life. Each product is produced to strict specification delivering you consistently stunning product every time.

Every order is packed by hand with recyclable packaging including reusable gel ice-packs to ensure your package travels safely with the least possible temperature fluctuation.

We deliver Nationwide within New Zealand 5 days a week, Tuesday to Saturday. We regret that owing to MPI regulations, we are unable to send meat products overseas.

Our frozen products are snap frozen to swiftly seal in the natural properties of the meat guaranteeing your product defrosts in mint condition. Slow freezing in your domestic freezer can dry and stress meat by comparison. Our products are frozen freshly processed so as to minimize the chances of bacteria development.

Your frozen product will arrive with it’s fresh-cut Use By date displayed. This date refers to it’s CHILLED state shelf life and may be well before the date of delivery. This is normal. Once the product freezes down it takes on a new lease of shelf-life! Industry regulations mean that most NZ food products display a Use By date which refers to their pre-frozen state. (Please contact Customer Services on Freephone 0800 737 800 for further explanation)

If you are travelling with your order, why not ask us to freeze it down professionally for you at no extra cost.
