Picking up a packet of burgers at the supermarket only for the label to reveal that the products have a low percentage of real meat is a common experience for the shopper hoping for a quick and easy meal. Current pre-made burgers on the supermarket shelves are bulked up using ‘filler’ ingredients – additives that are often starchy and low in nutritional value.
Thankfully, there’s another option that’s hitting the shelves from a company known for premium-quality red meat products.
Silver Fern Farms Honest Burger Range promises burgers that are “all thriller, no filler”. Silver Fern Farms Honest Burgers are 97% premium-quality red meat. They contain no artificial ingredients such as preservatives, flavours and colours. And while most other burgers on the market are unsuitable for those with gluten intolerance, the Honest Burger Range is gluten free.
With the launch of Silver Fern Farms’ Honest Burger Range, the hassle of assembling a burger at home is gone, and flavour isn’t sacrificed. Each product in the range includes a native New Zealand salt, pepper or herb seasoning that is paired perfectly with premium beef, lamb and venison. The cuts have been selected to create the perfect burger ‘bite’ and expertly blended for mouthfeel and balance of flavour. Included in the range are Beef and Horopito Pepper; Beef and Lamb with Mānuka Smoked Salt; Lamb and Kawakawa Herb; and Venison and Lamb with Kelp Sea Salt. “We wanted New Zealand flavours, New Zealand native herbs and peppers as a point of difference so that they fit really well with the meat, and so that consumers will have a great eating experience,” says Brenda Galbraith, Silver Fern Farms Marketing Manager. Plus, each burger box contains 500g of honest meat – 125g per burger, for thick, generous burgers that are juicy and tender. “They have minimal ingredients, are minimally processed, and therefore there’s a strong health angle to them,” adds Galbraith. “What you see on the pack is what you’re getting and what you’re eating.”
