Quality Foods Southland. World class French-style pastry products made with premium New Zealand ingredients

We are QFS...

From our beginnings as Southland’s Millar family bakery early last century, QFS has become a world class supplier of frozen pastry, croissants & Danish, cookies and sauces to local and off-shore markets.

 

Today we are a manufacturing bakery selling frozen pastry products via a network of distributors locally and overseas.

Our pastries and sauces have been the product of choice in Japan since we began exporting in the ‘80’s. We are proud to call National retailers and Foodservice suppliers across Asia our partners of 30 years, or more.

Today we continue investing in product development, adding a new range of frozen pre-proved, ready to bake croissants & Danish, and mouth watering cookies to our highly sought after pastry and croissants range.

With our newly registered Dairy RMP and highly rated FSSC2000 certification you know you are in good hands.

State of the art technology such as our Fritsch pastry line support development of a wide range of products to the highest standard.

But it is our people who are our biggest asset. A passionate team of skilled bakers with 100’s of years of combined experience baking for you, everyday.

 

QFS - world class baking at your fingertips.

 

Our world class facility...

QFS pastry products are manufactured on our state of the art Fritsch pastry line which gently moves the pastry through the laminations, resting it for best results.  Once customers cook with Pâtisserie L’Amour pastry they love it for life!

Our rigorous internal quality assurance programme ensures the products we sell to you are of the highest standard.
