Keeping our people and food safe
At The Pure Food Co the health and well-being of our customers and their residents is our top priority. We want to ensure that our food and people are safe and have a number of strict food safety controls in place including pasteurising at temperatures that prevent outbreaks of viruses, automated sealing of product and sanitary handling.
With the current situation escalating to a Level 4 for the next 4 weeks at least, we want to assure our customers that we are deemed an essential service and this is a privilege and responsibility we take very seriously. Our priority is to keep our team safe so that we can continue to supply our food and keep our customers healthy, even as orders increase we are working to ensure delivery in full for all orders.
Our nutritionally fortified purees and minced & moist products are a convenient meal option as they have a shelf life of 30 days in the refrigerator, they require minimum preparation and are ready to serve, meaning less hands and less chance of infection. Given these uncertain times we are working with our customers to help ensure their own continued ability to serve nutritious and safe food to their residents.
Food for Healthcare Organisations
Wanting nutritious and delicious products to support your residents? Our products offer convenient, versatile, budget-friendly options that provide peace of mind for all aged care and healthcare organisations and the people they care for.
Happier, Healthier Residents
We have done our research. Good nutrition dramatically improves quality of life. Based on InterRAI clinical assessment data we know that our nutrient-packed purees are associated with positive clinical outcomes and a dramatic increase in positive wellbeing of residents. The data shows that residents eating Pure Foods are 64% more likely to rate themselves in good or excellent health (September 2019 aggregated InterRAI clinical assessment data) than prior to eating Pure Foods. Even small amounts of our purees will help people get the nutrition they need to live their best lives.

Safety comes first
Our Pure Foods are pureed using unique technology to ensure our food is the exact right texture every time in line with the IDDSI standards and Dietitian
and Speech Language Therapist approved. Our products are currently supplied to all major hospitals and Aged Care networks in New Zealand. Our products also achieve the highest level for food safety certification, RMP Certified. For more information on this please contact us.
The International Dysphagia Diet Standardisation Initiative (IDDSI) framework standardises texture modified foods and thickened fluids for people with dysphagia, or eating and swallowing difficulties. Pure Foods products have been designed to be suitable for the IDDSI framework so you, or those you care for, are receiving the correct, safe texture every time.

Many of our Healthcare and Aged Care customers use our purees as bases for nutrition packed soups and smoothies for all residents. Here are some of our most popular recipes to inspire you.
Delicious tasting peace of mind
Our customers love that our products not only are boosted with pea and rice protein, energy and fibre to ensure every mouthful is extra nutritious, but they also love that our products are also very easy to make in the kitchen. By simply placing our puree on a plate and heating they see significant time saving and minimise waste… and residents love the taste!
The guaranteed safety eliminates any concerns the kitchen staff have for those with swallowing difficulties and using our purees moulded into shapes increases resident appetite appeal, encouraging them to eat more and therefore get more goodness in their day.
Free online training
As we believe in inspiring positive change within the Aged Care and Healthcare industry we have worked with experts to develop a range of online training modules to support those caring for the elderly. These modules cover topics such as nutrition, immunity, hydration, plate presentation and understanding IDDSI. We have introductory courses open to everyone, and advanced courses for those wanting more technical understanding.
Minced & Moist products
As well as our core Puree products (IDDSI level 4) we also produce Minced & Moist products (IDDSI level 5). These delicious recipes have been developed for residents and patients living with dysphagia, requiring a minced & moist diet. You can select your own food flavours & create your own menu or use one of our developed menu plans. Get in touch with us to set up a free consultation with our experienced team.
