A family-owned business since the late 1970s, Groenz is now a part of the Golden State Foods family of companies.


Groenz was founded in 1991 by Dutch Chef Maarten Groen, who came to New Zealand in 1957. On arriving in New Zealand Maarten immediately found that there was a lack of knowledge of European cuisine across the  catering industry, so he decided to leverage his culinary knowledge and help his colleagues by developing and manufacturing sauces, made by a chef for chefs.

His first sauce off the kitchen was European inspired mayonnaise, followed by tartare sauce shortly thereafter.


Now the company produces over 200 variants of authentic tasting sauces and condiments.


In 2018, Groenz became a part of Golden State Foods, one of the largest diversified suppliers and manufacturers to the foodservice industry.


Groenz has a dedicated sale force throughout New Zealand and Australia. This sales force is supported by experts in Manufacturing, Technology, Supply Chain and other corporate roles such as Finance, Marketing, Customer Service and Human Resources based throughout Australasia.
