Leonard’s Superior Smallgoods Ltd produced it’s first sausage in March 1989, and has expanded it’s range and continued growing with great success ever since.
Leonard’s initial target was four tonnes of sausage per week, today production levels are in excess of 90 tonnes of high quality sausages, ham & bacon per week.
The Company is owned by two partners – Doug Leonard and Richard Kornman, who started the company together and continue to work side by side in a successful partnership, which has built a company whose fine products & reputation, are now legendary throughout the North Island.
Richard heads the sales & marketing aspect of the business, which leaves Doug free to concentrate on quality production. Together they have created a reputation of total dedication to giving a consistent quality product at a competitive price and complete customer satisfaction.
This can be attested to by such prestigious customers as McDonald’s Restaurants, Goodman Fielder (Quality Bakers), Progressive Enterprises (Foodtown, Countdown & Woolworths supermarkets) and Foodstuffs Ltd (Pak N Save & New World supermarkets) to name but a few.
Leonard’s uses only top quality (export grade) meats, ingredients and materials in the manufacture of their products.
Food safety is a critically important issue at Leonard’s.
Leonard’s have invested a great deal of money, time and effort into establishing the standards necessary to ensure the product quality achieved is at the highest level – exactly the level that is expected by all of their clients.
The focus is always on delivering the highest quality and safest product directly to their customers, whether they are further processors or in the retail trade.
In the interests of consistent high quality the motivating philosophy is “What we do today, we do tomorrow, we do next week, we do next month, we do next year and on into the future will give all end users of our product confidence in the Brand”.
