Hansells NZ Ltd began operating in the food business as a manufacturer of emulsion culinary essences in 1934, when a chemist named Hansen linked up with the founder, “L.B.” Maunsell, M.c. It was the combination of the two names of these entrepreneurs that determined the name “Hansells”.

Hansells have been in the business of developing and selling products since 1934 and have gained an international reputation for high quality foods that are appetising in flavour and competitively priced. The Hansells brand stands for reliable, trusted, family orientated products. The focus today is on satisfying the consumer’s needs for tasty, convenient and healthy foods that are good value for money and enjoyed by the whole family.

Hansells products are found in most New Zealand kitchens for over 70 years and the company also exports its products around the world.
