Once you've tasted Havoc Pork you'll know the difference.
Havoc Prime Pork Products had humble beginnings but noble aspirations. Nothing more than a pig farm and a series of ideas written on a paper napkin over lunch. To cut out the middle man. To let people taste the difference. To do it right. We wanted to make sure that Havoc Pork was Free Range, Anti-biotic free, Out-door, Right on and utterly delicious. Not much has changed in the years since that meal.
We continue to supply from paddock to plate with our heads held high. The people, magazines, television shows and chefs nationwide have agreed on the sublime flavour. As for the pigs themselves, well, they’re all over the place, but every night they go back to their own huts.
The pigs are grown on Havoc Farm in Hunter, South Canterbury. 15 minutes from the farm they get turned into beautiful bacon, sausages and gourmet cuts of pork in the Havoc Factory, Belt Street Waimate. Every part of the process is a hands-on endeavour and an affirmation of the ideas on that napkin. It was a radical concept, but we thought it could be done and now we know it can.
We know, because we’re doing it.

“Where can I buy Havoc Pork in Dunedin?” We always had a stockiest but they couldn’t carry our entire range. So finally the decision was made. Lets open a shop. So we did.
