Our services are built around the relationships we’ve built – from farmer to retailer.

Livestock Purchase

We will buy your stock. With buyers based in Wairarapa, Hawks Bay, BOP, King Country and the Waikato, we’ve got New Zealand covered. We buy cattle, sheep, pigs and goats and can tailor a farm procurement programme to suit your business needs. We buy outright, through contract grazing schemes, and by fixed price contracts.

Meat Processing

We have meat processing plants at Gladstone(Kintyre Meats), Wellington (TPL) and Hastings (PML). We can slaughter, bone, cut, chill and pack any number of cattle, sheep, pigs or goats – we are even happy to process the Christmas lamb from your lifestyle block! All carcasses are fully traceable and are inspected by Assure Quality. We are AB Listed and regularly process animals for other meat companies who supply the trade. We are regularly MPI audited.

Refrigerated Delivery

With a fleet of five modern refrigerated delivery vehicles, Cabernet Foods is constantly on the road supplying quality meat products to distributors and retailers from Northland to Canterbury. To complement the delivery logistics Cabernet Foods operates from Chilled and Frozen distribution centres in Hamilton, Hastings and Masterton.

Meat Product Sales

From New Zealand’s largest grocery chain, through independent meat distributors and smallgoods companies, to the neighbourhood butcher, we supply top quality meat to every sector of the market.

Today’s sophisticated consumer wants to know where their food has come from. Our flexibility and ability to ‘tailor the supply chain’ gives us control over our products ‘from paddock to plate’.
