Where do we source our produce?

The quality that people expect from every visit to Wendy’s begins long before menu items and their ingredients reach our restaurants. As a Wendy’s customer, you can count on many things: a friendly crew; a relaxed atmosphere; clean tables; and great tasting food. We value the taste of our food, and we’ll never sacrifice the delicious flavor of our hamburgers, fries, or anything else on our menu. Mouthwatering, gotta-have-it-now flavor is our M.O., so you know you can count on us to satisfy that craving – whether it’s for your meat-and-cheesy afternoon snack or your oh-so-sweet late-night treat.

 

We try to source our ingredients from as many New Zealand suppliers as we can. Our suppliers include:

 
  • talleys new logo spot

Our French Fries are supplied by Talley’s, as their potato products are produced from potatoes grown in the mineral-rich soil of the Canterbury Plains. Every fry has a reassuringly traceable provenance back to the clean, natural seas and fields of New Zealand.

  • tatua

Tatua Co-Operative Dairy Company supply our Frosty, with their 114 shareholder farms producing the highest quality cow's milk in the country, all within a 12km radius of their Waikato factory.

  • ingham

Waikato-based Ingham supplies our chicken products from their farms in the North Island.  The chickens are raised in barns - not cages - where they are free to walk about. We serve three premium chicken products - Homestyle, Spicy and Ultimate Chicken Grill - which are all made from whole chicken breast, rather than a reconstituted product.

  • Tegel Logo

Tegel supplies the chicken for our Spicy Chicken Strips. Their free range chickens are fed a nutritious diet of grains, corn, vitamins and minerals, which has been specially formulated by their poultry nutritionists.

  • wilson hellaby

Wendy's has sourced its premium quality New Zealand beef from Wilson Hellaby for over 20 years, and the patties contain only 100% prime New Zealand beef, with no preservatives, fillers or binders - nothing is added to the beef or taken away.  All beef used at Wendy's is grass-fed and free of Hormone Growth Promotants.
