About us

Welcome to Food Hugger Gourmet, where passion meets the grill in a symphony of flavours that will elevate your barbecue experience to new heights!
Food Hugger Gourmet is a South Taranaki based business started by Scott and Ricci Harbuck in August 2021, to share authentic American style barbeque sauces with New Zealand.
Food Hugger Gourmet is your ticket to a journey through the heart of American barbecue tradition. Our handcrafted, small-batch BBQ sauces are a celebration of flavour, created to infuse your favourite meats with an explosion of taste.
From the rich, smoky notes of our Kansas City BBQ Sauce to the sweet and tangy embrace of our Memphis BBQ Sauce, each bottle of Food Hugger Gourmet sauce is a testament to the art of barbecue. Join us on this culinary adventure, where every drop of sauce is a hug for your food, and every meal is a celebration of the BBQ lifestyle.
Unleash your inner pitmaster and let us be your trusted partner on the road to BBQ perfection.
