meet our new love!
We are excited to announce a new addition to the Picnic Box family. Rescued is the 'brainchild' developed in lockdown from our mission to help reduce food waste.
Chosen by Countdown for the Kete Accelerator Programme, an incredible initiative to support five New Zealand businesses to get product on shelves.
We're rescuing food that's surplus, a bit wonky, or getting close to it's best before date. We're giving it a lot of love, a total makeover and upcycling it into deliciousness.
We've got a kicking roast capsicum white bean dip, crackers, coookies, and more. Packed in home compostable packaging by our VIP's (very important packers) at the Attainable Trust.

We love our friends at the Attainable Trust so much we've moved in together!
The new Picnic Box and Rescued HQ are at 50 Lovegrove Crescent, Otara. How awesome is this for an address!
The amazing team at Attainable Trust will be helping us to pack your picnics and they're available to help you too.
We love helping charities, schools and community organisations to fundraise.
Whether it's baking packs of themed rescued biscuit or loading up the picnic box trailer with picnics we want to help.

The Picnic box treats we enjoyed at the Classic Hits Winery Tour at Villa Maria were delectable, our guests raved about them. Thank you Diane and the team for the seamless communication and delivery of our picnics which added that extra special something to our show experience.
The Picnic Boxes were a hit at our Anniversary lunch last Saturday. People just couldn't stop talking about them and as our daughter said, “when she passed them out to our guests it was like she was giving them each a present and really it was like opening a Christmas Hamper to find all these little packages of surprises. It was all so easy for us and your communication was excellent.

I can’t thank you enough! I was blown away by the quality of the boxes. Everyone, including the kids absolutely loved their lunch and the staff were still raving about them on Monday. You were right – those brownies are to die for! Thank you for your fabulous service!
