Assurance from Anathoth Farm regarding products containing berries


You may be aware of the recent cases of Hepatitis A linked to frozen berry products sold in Australia.

As a result of this situation we thought it timely to reassure you there is NO issue with any Anathoth Farm products. We use New Zealand grown fruit wherever possible. If we do need to supplement supply with imported fruit, it is stated on the back label.

You may be further reassured to know that all products manufactured by us are subjected to a thermal process (our minimum heat treatment is 75°C for ten minutes) which exceeds the lethal temperature for food pathogens such as viruses. Due to our accredited supplier food safety program, our minimum heat treatment  and our audited compliance systems, our products are not at risk from viruses or pathogens.

If you have any further queries regarding this please contact our Customer Services team on 0800 227 537 (NZ) or 1800 145 745 (AUST) or email jammaker@anathoth.co.nz.
