To get it right takes a lot of time, effort and skill. Pure Food makes it effortless to prepare fresh, nourishing and delicious meals in moments.

We don’t just create individual meals - we create entire menus!
Or select cost-effective individual meal portions to supplement your menu!If you already have a menu, simply incorporate Pure Food into your menu, with our cost-effective individual meal portions. Have you ever tried to puree a salad? Maybe its time to try our vegetables, which can be eaten chilled straight from the pouch and taste great.
The benefits to care providers are immense; less time is spent on providing highly enjoyable, safe and nutritious texture modified meals, providing ‘whole-of-house’ efficiency.
Seadrome provides Dementia Care for 45 people – FOOD MATTERS.
The very nature of dementia precludes the residents giving feedback of food preferences, but empty plates say it all. Puree food has always been a problem for us so we were delighted when Pure Food offered us an alternative. They provided us with extensive menus which stimulated the residents appetites. Our staff find pleasure being able to serve this food knowing the residents enjoy it, with the added benefit of the residents weight gain.
Kitchen staff find it a simple procedure – delivered to the kitchen – refrigerated – microwaved - served to the residents.
Overall one of our best decisions. Tina, Manager, Seadrome Home & Hospital
Professional carers make an immense contribution in supporting the recovery of those living with a health condition, disability, or injury. On top of the care and support provided by carers, they are often responsible for meal preparation, which can be difficult when the people they care for are on a texture modified diet. We provide easy to prepare texture modified meals for the carer, so they can focus on what is most important; caring for those in need.
Home and Disability Care
In addition to professional carers, more than 430,000 New Zealanders care for ill, frail, injured or disabled family members and friends, many of whom have difficulty eating and require a texture modified diet. We wanted to make it easier for carers to spend more time caring for their loved ones, and less time preparing meals.
It is estimated that one in three people over the age of 65, as well as a large number of younger people, have difficulty chewing, swallowing or digesting conventional food. This can be a result of many conditions, including stroke, dementia, or head trauma.
