The glossy “Partridge in a Pear Tree” themed packaging looks brilliant on Christmas retail in-store presentations.
The 200gm hamper pack and the 100 gm pillow pack really say you’re offering something very special in your hampers and corporate gifts and in gift retailers.
Our food service clients love the pillow packs for table gifts and turn-downs
In all modesty, they are the jewels of Christmas Puddings.

A fabulous version of a contemporary Christmas Pudding
Nigella loves our Christmas Puddings and other fascinating facts -
Our “Partridge in a Pear Tree” packaging for our Christmas puddings, cakes and other Christmas goodies have won a Packaging Council Award.
We were the first company to package our Christmas Puddings in gorgeous presentation boxes.
Prior to our entry into the market place, all competitive Christmas Puddings were presented in a very traditional, "cottagey" presentation, with calico and ribbons.
We set the standard which now many others have followed.
Our award winning packaging has enabled our products to become the focal point for instore displays in retail stores such as David Jones.
An alcohol free version of our Classic Christmas Puddings have been given as gifts to valued clients of the only 7 star hotel in the world, the famous burj-al-arab in Dubai.
We were the first Australian producer selling Christmas Puddings to Harvey Nichols and Selfridges, London.
At that stage, we were the only Australian producer selling Christmas Puddings, Great Australian Puddings, Chocolate Truffle and Fig and Walnut puddings into these retailers.
We were also approached by Harrods, Englands most famous retail brand, to produce private label Christmas Puddings and Cakes for them.
Nigella Lawson loves our Christmas Puddings
Nigella Lawson, the domestic goddess, wanted us to produce here in Australia private label Christmas Cakes and Christmas Puddings for her.
The only reason that did not go ahead, was the tyranny of distance, producing and transporting from Australia, paying the EU tariffs etc, made the project financially unviable.
Maybe Brexit will make it feasible.
Many of our Christmas Puddings and desserts really do contain Grand Marnier, Cointreau and Galliano
And speaking of quality, we hold international licences from the makers of Grand Marnier, Marnier Lapostolle to proudly bear the famous Grand Marnier trademark on our range of Chocolate Truffle Desserts (flavoured with Grand Marnier).
We hold similar licences from Remy Martin for products using Cointreau, and from the makers of the aromatic Italian liqueur Galliano for a range of desserts, cakes and dessert sauces.
We are very proud to be partnered with these internationally renowned names.
Our Chocolate Truffle Dessert has had a Royal Command Performance
Our wonderful Chocolate Truffle Dessert flavoured with Grand Marnier has been served to the Prince of Wales, Prince Charles and (then) Camilla Parker-Bowles at an Anglo Australian function in London, with apparently unanimous delight.

In fact we were one of the first food companies to pursue and gain HACCP accreditation.

Some of those ingredients include treats like Grand Marnier, Galliano, Cointreau - and of course Gippsland’s very own Hatlifter Stout.
