The Story

We know good burgers. We also know good flavours. Our founder Mick, started his burger perfecting journey back in 1989 when he started Burger Wisconsin. Eventually the time came to sell the franchise and the next step was obvious, continue the burger journey and bring good things to New Zealand kitchens, this was the start of Rocket Smallgoods.


The sauces

Way back when, a group of friends enjoyed a cheeky sit down mince pie and were introduced to a homemade sultana and chilli based sauce that was impossible to forget. This was the start of Rocket Fuel, a delicious sauce to rival tomato sauce and BBQ sauces around the country and take dishes to new heights. It didn’t take too long before the search for another level began and a hot sauce, Rocket Boost was crafted.


The meat

Once you get the meat right, you will never settle for anything sub-par again and Rocket meats is about always getting the meat right. Fresh beef straight from New Zealand farms to the Rocket factory to prepare the patties, meatballs and mince sold in supermarkets all over the country.
