About us

From small beginnings…

Bush Road Ltd commenced trading in 1984 when the late Dave Alexander came up with the idea of processing vegetables from his market garden based in Bush Road, Mosgiel, so they could be packaged ready-to-serve straight to the table.  From there the company grew and expanded into new products, forging the tradition of innovation it continues today. We were the first New Zealand company to produce ready-to-go Coleslaw for supermarkets throughout the South Island followed closely by the manufacture of fresh ready to go salads and vegetables.

Bush Road has become a household brand synonymous with quality and our customers feel safe in the knowledge they are purchasing from an organisation that prides themselves on food safety, nutrition and quality.

Bush Road Ltd is part of the South Island Fresh Foods Ltd brand who’s owners are proud and committed to retain the quality and expertise within Bush Road while at the same time looking at innovative and healthy ideas to meet customer demand.

Food safety and processing techniques are paramount to this successful operation and this skill coupled with strong relations within the supermarket trade are ensuring our product is meeting the needs of the North Island as well.
