About Us

We are a family owned and operated food distribution business. Peter, Kathie and Luke Russell are the front line people who our customers see and have contact with. There are other team members working in behind the scenes with the sorting, packing and the delivery of your orders.

Mediterranean Foods Nelson began back in September 2002, operating from a retail shop on Halifax Street next to the Nelson Library. Over the following years we have changed our business model several times to fit with the continually changing market place and economy, in what is a very seasonal Nelson hospitality industry. 

Today we are a niche food distributor supplying around 1000 quality products into the restaurants, caterers and cafes throughout the Nelson Tasman region.

We operate from a compact and efficient warehouse with walk in chillers and freezers on our property in Brightwater. We have found over the many years in the industry, that a small organised facility, with everything at our fingertips works well for us and our customers.  


We deliver free of charge daily Monday to Friday. We use our own vehicles for the city through to Richmond and the Mapua area. For further afield through to Golden Bay we have teamed up with local carriers who specialise in delivering chilled and frozen freight. With our resources combined we are able to offer an efficient prompt delivery service through the entire Nelson Tasman region.
