Flight goes instant, Griffin’s brings out two new ToffeePops flavours for winter, East Imperial launches its first natural low-calorie tonic water, and My Food Bag marks Matariki.

New Zealand coffee company Flight has followed up the launch of its canned sparkling cold brew earlier this year with a move into instant.

The three-strong range of speciality instant coffee includes Bomber, Timor-Leste and Bomber with Lion’s Mane and Reishi, all developed with product innovation and manufacturing specialists New Ground.

The 60g jars are available online starting at $37.50.

The Griffin’s Food Company has taken inspiration from New Zealand’s favourite desserts to add some innovation to its ToffeePops biscuits range.

Two new flavours comprising Chocolate Brownie and Hawke’s Bay Apple Crumble have hit the market for winter.

The 200g packets are on sale at supermarkets nationwide with an RRP of $3.00.

Premium mixer company East Imperial has launched its very first natural low-calorie tonic water.

The company said it has the lowest calories per serve in the market at less than 18 calories / 3.75g of sugar per serve, without compromising on taste.

It is available online for $49 for a 24-pack of 150ml bottles and in-store in New Zealand now, with other markets set to follow.

My Food Bag is the latest food venture with an innovation to tie in with Matariki.

The meal kit company has developed a collection of special Matariki recipes, which it says will help Kiwis celebrate local produce and encourage them to cook and gather together.

It partnered with well-known television and radio host, Stacey Morrison, to create and test the range of recipes, which includes her chicken hāngī parcels with broccoli and watercress béarnaise, and a butterflied leg of lamb with watercress béarnaise (pictured).
