The Montana Difference always starts with - Real cooking, contemporary, great taste. This is created by our internationally experienced Chefs, in state of the art kitchens, using locally sourced ingredients, made by our team. The difference is always on the plate.
Making sure our food is safe and suitable is our number one priority. Every Montana kitchen follows a tightly regulated Food Control Plan, which is registered with the Ministry for Primary Industries. We have a dedicated Nutrition & Food Quality Manager who oversees the Food Control Plan across our business and conducts detailed monthly audits across each site. In addition, our kitchens undergo a regular external verification process to ensure we are meeting the requirements of the food act.
Our kitchens have achieved the prestigious Qualmark stamp of approval – Silver level. The lengthy audit process explored our products and services, customer satisfaction and feedback processes, facilities, equipment, staffing processes, cultural considerations, health and safety, and overall business management. We are extremely proud to be awarded this achievement. To find out more about Qualmark please visit – www.qualmark.co.nz
