The Black Doris brand has grown from collecting fallen plums in a nearby abandoned orchard, to foraging parsley for pesto on the coasts of Banks Peninsula. Black Doris founder, Laura, began making her version of the classic Italian Vino Cotto using plums rather than grapes and from there the Black Doris journey began.
As generations of Kiwis have enjoyed heritage Black Doris plums, it seemed fitting to share our love of the plum in the Black Doris name!
Black Doris spreads and slices are plant based, vegan, dairy and gluten ingredient free and are a great addition to any diet. The spreads include an aquafaba MAYONNAISE; a delicious and versatile almond ZEPHYR SAUCE and due to the abundance of parsley found around Banks Peninsula, this inspired a delicious parsley PESTO.
A variety of raw slices includes Black Doris Plum, Lemon Delicious, Salted Caramel, Peanut+Chocolate, Raspberry+Hemp, Peppermint, Chocolate Truffle, and Ginger which are available at various cafes.
Being passionate about the environment, we do as much as we can to limit our packaging impact. Spreads are sold in glass pots which can be returned for reuse and slices are delivered boxed.
We have huge aspirations for Black Doris - to create an ethical, sustainable business using organic ingredients where possible, giving the people of Aotearoa access to nourishing foods, informed choices and the chance to be part of company that wants to be the change and make a difference in the world.
