Since the level 4 lockdown in New Zealand, the list of essential services has grown beyond supermarkets and petrol stations.
Upon the announcement that the Warehouse and Noel Leeming would be open online to sell essential household items, many other businesses have been reclassified as essential.
The growing list is being tracked on delivereat.co.nz, which lists over 420 businesses delivering throughout New Zealand. Visit the site to see the latest list and keep reading for our top picks.
Pre-made meals, butchers and fish
If you’re sick of cooking at home, a few businesses are selling pre-made meals. If you’re craving some comfort food, order some dumplings from Baolicious or a hearty beef tagine from Village Kitchen.
For healthier pre-made meals, you can order from Plate-up’s extensive menu or some simple ready-made meals from Prep’d.
For your protein essentials, The Meat Box delivers a range of staples, and Clarks Organic Butchery serves up organic and free-range meats. And for seafood, try Akaroa Salmon and Gourmet Seafood.
Fresh produce, bakeries and coffee
For fresh fruit and vegetables, order from Twisted Citrus and Huckleberry.
For freshly-baked bread, you can order from The Midnight Baker, Paneton and Loaf.
And while you’re missing your barista coffee, you can still get your fix from Eight Thirty Coffee and Altezzano Brothers.
Wine, cheese and chocolate
There are a handful of alcohol and gourmet food deliveries still open to satisfy our cravings. Go to Amisfield, McLeod’s Brewery and Chard Farm Winery for your favourite bottles and brews.
Pair your selection with tasty artisan cheeses from Whitestone Cheese and New Zealand Cheese.
Top it off with some gourmet chocolates from Remarkable Chocolate and The Chocolate Barn.
