Passionate About Our Craft

Combining heritage and tradition with Kiwi hospitality for over 20 years

Loved by Kiwis, visitors and expats alike, the Mueck family has been serving up gourmet German sausages, European smallgoods and cheeses in our Tauranga and Auckland stores for over 20 years. After emigrating Bernd & Michaela soon discovered that there was no one else with a comprehensive range of small goods and settled on opening in Tauranga on December 9th,1999.

As New Zealand’s largest manufacturer of German sausages, we’re proud to say that all our meat products are made by us in our own factory, using time-honoured techniques, traditional German recipes, and high-quality locally sourced ingredients. Our qualified German butchers call on over 100 years of sausage making knowledge and tradition, passed on and continuously perfected over three generations of expert sausage makers. 20 years later Bernd & Michaela are still involved in the day to day running but have passed on some responsibility to Robin & Alana Mueck in the Tauranga shop and the Albany shop is owned by adoptive Germans Damien and his wife to be Francesca.

We’re passionate about our craft and committed to producing only premium meats of exceptional quality. But it’s not just our selection that keeps customers coming back, but also our service. We’re proud of the long-standing reputation for great service we’ve established, and the relationships we’ve built with our community of customers, right throughout the country.

The best pork belly I have ever tasted in my life! And it comes in a sandwich! It is so mouth-wateringly tender makes me hungry just thinking of it. The owner is so passionate about his work it was refreshing to see. The cold-smoked ham has such an amazing flavour also. I have recommended this deli to everyone I know!

Our German Sausage Factory

While our recipes and techniques might be firmly rooted in German tradition, the meat products we produce are proudly made right here in our Mount Maunganui factory. Made with fresh local ingredients and premium quality meats, everything that leaves our factory gets the tick of approval from our qualified German butchers.
