Baxter's Original, Ready To Launch!

Project 2015-06-03 11:22:43 +1200

Baxter's Original is a family run business located in Wellington, New Zealand.  It was conceived as our family had many food allergies.  It seemed there wasn't anything out there store bought we could have.  And if there was, they were full of additives, preservatives, fake colouring, and gluten. So we started making our own sauces and coconut based dairy free ice cream with the promise of transparency in our labeling, with no added confusing numbers or chemicals you would read as you scrolled through the ingredients. Once we started sharing with our friends and work colleagues, word spread and everyone was requesting our products. Word of mouth is still spreading, so much that we need to go public and expand!  Our products are gluten, dairy, soy, nut free, vegetarian AND we use unrefined cane sugar. Ingredients are all natural, with no GMO's. 

              

Our Line Up:

American style BBQ sauce

Sweet and Smoky

Our flagship sauce for kids and adults alike.  Sweet with a smoky finish.  Mild, no spice.

Chipotle

Smoked jalapeño bbq sauce — Full flavoured and a fan favourite.  Medium.

Spicy Bourbon

Bourbon and some campfire smoke equals one tasty sauce. This one just might win some awards! Medium Hot.

Dragon's Breath

By request, the hottest of our lineup and a favourite at BBQs.  Bold flavour and bold heat.  Hot.

Oriental Sauce

Gluten Free Teriyaki sauce — Smoked sesame with a secret twist, making this quite different than any other sauce.  Hard to find and delicious! (contains fermented soy)

Hot Sauce

Our Landmine Chili-lime hot sauce is our newest product and has quite a following. It just happens to be one of our top sellers. Heat with LOTs and LOTs of flavour.

                                                                                                                                                  

Dairy free coconut based ice cream:

This is new to our lineup and became quite popular very quickly as we have chosen to create all those flavours that everyone loves but still maintaining gluten free and dairy free. A first of it's kind. Flavours include:

  • Second Breakfast (tastes like a stack of pancakes!)
  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
  • Double Chocolate Brownie
  • Dark Chocolate Mint Chip

About us

Scott is a senior digital artist in visual effects and works in Wellington. In the past, he was also a successful commercial brewer and won "best of the fest" in the Florida USA 2000 International beer festival for his brown ale. He has a knack for putting great recipes together for food and drink, as proven in our sauce and ice cream line up as well!  But also has a can-do business side to him.

Scott went to university for graphic design/advertising and international business in an entrepreneurship role. And also enjoys shooting commercials in his spare time. Erika has a major role in raising our family. She takes care of our two boys, ages 6 and 3 while working on growing the business.  Erika studied theatre, is a masseuse,  and worked in film production for many years as a Producer before starting a family. We have been happily married for 8 years and are very excited for this new venture into sharing our secret recipes that our friends and family enjoy so much with the world.

The Deal:

We are looking for $5000 as a jump start to get our sauces in stores all around Wellington, New Zealand and beyond. This money would help fund all the legalities with the NZ govt, our food safety programme, rear labels on our sauces that are store-ready, and to help pay our food scientist that is working ever so hard to get us there in record timing. We already have a few major stores lined up that would like our product on their shelves! Another part of this crowd funding would go towards our dairy free ice cream line up. We have already acquired an ice cream contract at a very busy tourist destination, but need funds to get some equipment and containers with the proper labels, and the legalities with the Ministry of Primary Industries. Our dairy free coconut ice cream "Second Breakfast" has been a hit. It is vanilla coconut ice cream with blueberries, strawberries, maple syrup and bacon. Yes bacon! It will be a great start to the line up that will expand to other flavours and other destinations in the future. 

Many places are already requesting our products and we know we are on the road to creating a viable business that has creative, fun and delicious hypoallergenic and natural products for New Zealand and beyond.  This is just the first step, and with your help it can happen!

We thank you for all of your support thus far. And look forward to the future!

*** For our friends in America: Should you still wish to support us on this end, we just ask for your patience in shipping as there will be a few things to figure out. :)
