About Us

Kia Ora, we are Diana and James, the people behind Family Pantry. 

Family Pantry is a small, family owned business located in the beautiful Bay of Plenty. We are focussed on offering an extensive range of organic food online and delivering it to communities all over New Zealand.  

Family Pantry was born from our own passion for wholesome food and our desire to share its benefits with others. We believe it is important to teach our children about healthy food and forming good habits from the beginning, so our future generations are conscious about making the right choices for themselves and their environment. 

We also believe every family should have access to affordable, healthy and nutritious food – free of harmful chemicals, Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO), artificial colours and flavours. We also know it's challenging nowadays to shop for quality products, quickly and easily which is why we are so happy to help people shop online at their convenience and ge their organic food delivered straight to their door.

We want to make positive changes to our planet, educate ourselves about nutrition and improve our quality of life through what we eat and we want to inspire others to do the same. Having said that, life is a balance and we’re certainly not above Friday night fish n’ chips on the beach! 

Our aim is to bring you reasonably priced, wholesome and organic food with a focus on environmentally friendly and biodegradable packaging.

About our products 

Family Pantry offers a combination of organic bulk foods (e.g. organic flours, nuts, seeds, dried fruit, rice) and high quality retail products (e.g. Olivado Avocado Oils, Beagle’s Bees honey).  

For organic bulk foods such as flour and rice, here’s how it works: 

· We research and source quality, organic certified bulk foods  

· We purchase in bulk quantities directly from the wholesaler 

· We repack and separate bulk foods into manageable household quantities 

· You order your organic food online in the quantities you need* and we deliver it to you 

      * options range from 200g – 10kg per product 

Family Pantry complies with the high standards of the New Zealand Food Safety requirements and is independently audited by local authorities.  

We source our food from reputable producers and wholesalers with an aim to buy local, New Zealand made food whenever we can. 

Most of the food on our website is organic certified, however we also offer non-certified organic food from producers who work within organic principles and have chosen not to get certified. Please refer to the product tags online to identify the organic and/or special dietary status for each product.

We prefer our footprint to be as small as possible, all of our organic bulk products are packed into environmentally friendly, biodegradable and compostable paper bags and we pack your order into recycled cardboard boxes whenever possible.

We enjoy to bring you a variety of quality products such as:

- Organic bulk foods

- Organic groceries

- Gluten free food

- Dairy free food

- Vegetarian and vegan friendly options

- New Zealand made food
