Chantal Organics began in 1978, in Hawkes Bay, when a group of like-minded people shared a vision of healthier food for their families. They formed a co-operative to buy organic and natural wholefoods. One of the families had a daughter named Chantal, so the name Chantal Organics is a reminder that organic and natural whole foods care for our families, our environment, and future generations.
The Chantal Organics business was purchased from members of the founding families by the Kraus family in August 2016 and is still completely NZ owned and operated.
Chantal Organics is now a nationwide manufacture and wholesaler, distributing organic products into grocery and green stores and making award winning spreads and breakfast cereals from our production facility in the Hawke’s Bay.
We also have a strong bulk foods business, which supports consumers in buying plastic-free via various bulk-refill outlets throughout the country, as well as supplying manufacturers such as bakers and other food producers with the highest quality organic ingredients.

Raw fruit and vegetables may be better for your mental health than cooked, canned and processed fruit and vegetables.
University of Otago researchers have discovered raw fruit and vegetables provide better mental health outcomes, but the trick is in the way they are prepared and consumed.
Psychology senior lecturer and lead author Dr Tamlin Conner says public health campaigns usually focus on aspects of quantity for the consumption of fruit and vegetables – such as the 5+ a day campaigns – but for mental health, raw is best. “Our research has highlighted that the consumption of fruit and vegetables in their ‘unmodified’ state is more strongly associated with better mental health compared to cooked/canned/processed fruit and vegetables,” Conner says. “This could be because the cooking and processing of fruit and vegetables has the potential to diminish nutrient levels. This likely limits the delivery of nutrients that are essential for optimal emotional functioning.”
For the study, more than 400 young adults from New Zealand and the United States aged 18 to 25 were surveyed. This age group was chosen as young adults typically have the lowest fruit and vegetable consumption of all age groups and are at high risk for mental health disorders.
The group’s typical consumption of raw versus cooked and processed fruits and vegetables was assessed, alongside their negative and positive mental health, and lifestyle and demographic variables that could affect the association between fruit and vegetable intake and mental health (such as exercise, sleep, unhealthy diet, chronic health conditions, socioeconomic status, ethnicity and gender).
“Controlling for the covariates, raw fruit and vegetable consumption predicted lower levels of mental illness symptomology, such as depression, and improved levels of psychological wellbeing including positive mood, life satisfaction and flourishing,” she says. “These mental health benefits were significantly reduced for cooked, canned and processed fruits and vegetables. This research is increasingly vital as lifestyle approaches such as dietary change may provide an accessible, safe and adjuvant approach to improving mental health.”
The top 10 raw foods related to better mental health were carrots, bananas, apples, dark leafy greens such as spinach, grapefruit, lettuce, citrus fruits, fresh berries, cucumber and kiwifruit.
