Heavenly salmon: Hororata Foods

Not much beats gathering some friends around to catch up over drinks and a delicious platter, especially when the hero is succulent salmon.

Enjoyed hot smoked, cold smoked, baked, fried, or flaked onto crackers, salmon is a much-loved part of so many household gatherings and celebrations.

More than 25 years ago Henry Studholme, director of Sovereign Salmon, purchased land in Hororata and transformed a state-of-the-art abandoned honey processing plant, into a fully-functional salmon smoking factory.

It is now the only New Zealand wholly-owned and operated export-eligible smoked salmon processing plant in the country.

The factory employs around 20 people, and any passing public are welcome to browse the factory shop, at 165 Hororata Road, for tempting smoked salmon goodies.

The New Zealand Salmon comes from Stewart Island and the delicious range of various cuts and ready-to-eat varieties are not only sold at the factory shop but at their very own Salmon Heaven shops in the Bush Inn Centre Christchurch and at 124 Parnell Road Auckland, as well as the local West Melton Market @ 254 every Saturday.

New to these stores is the gourmet pizza and pie range, as well as products from a selection of small local businesses.
