Quality matters – it is our continuing commitment and our highest priority. To keep pace with the newest available technology, we have upgraded the Waiwera facility to house a new purpose-built microbiology lab.

Without getting too technical, know that we analyse our water using the highest international methods, which happen to be the same ones used by the US Environmental Protection Agency.
 
“This lab will allow us to monitor the product at key points in the process,” says James Smith, our in-house microbiologist, “allowing us to target any potential problems as soon as they appear.” We’re pleased to have James on our team, bringing to us his experience with leading international beverage companies.

Waiwera Thermal Resort is proud to introduce Chef Eru.

The Native Chef will prepare modern westernised food with a twist of Maori cuisine. A range of dishes are available, featuring traditional hangi flavours and native herbs, which are used in all recipes - such as the Beef Schnitzel with Horopito Beetroot Relish, Satay Sauce and Kawakawa Aioli.

 

Waiwera spent three eventful days at the Taste of New Zealand festival last week.

The Waiwera Chefs Table was a success, with hundreds of attendees coming to watch guest chefs such as Annabel Langbein and Josh Emmet use their culinary skills in front of the crowd.

Chef Eru brought some talent to the Waiwera Stand - we had an amazing time and enjoyed meeting everyone who made it along!
