Originally founded in Auckland, NZ by Jack Link’s USA and Kiwi John Corner in 2002.
Today Jack Link’s is the No1 Meat-Snacks Supplier in New Zealand lead by CEO Maurice Crosby, who operates a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Auckland and exports 94% of our high-quality beef snacks all over the world including the USA, Europe, Japan & Australia after supplying the needs of all New Zealander's.
THE NO1 MEAT-SNACK MANUFACTURER ON THE PLANET
Globally, Link Snacks is No1 manufacturer in the meat-snack market sector and the 8th largest snack manufacturer overall in the world marketplace which includes food giants such as Pepsico, Kelloggs and ConAgra Foods, which are some of the largest snack-food manufacturers on the planet today.
Impressively in 2014, Link Snacks was globally the fastest growing snack-food provider, surpassing even Pepsico in 'growth-rate' with an impressive 31% value increase — the highest rate seen among the world’s top 50 major global snack-food manufacturers.
The next few years are going to be an exciting time for Links Snacks as the world realises that the very best snack food option is no longer potato chips, candy or energy drinks.
The Jack Link's revolution has begun.
GLOBAL MEAT-SNACK PHENOMENON
Over the last decade a massive revolution has been taking place with people's snacking-choices in almost every country around the world.
In today's fast-paced modern lifestyle, snacking whilst on the go has become an important part of our culture, yet traditionally most people have only thought about potato chips, candy or energy drinks as a snacking choice, as these were the only options they were aware of.
In reality these traditional snacking products almost completely lack 'any real-nutrition or energy benefits' and knowing this for many years, the general population of the world has wanted to find a much better and much more beneficial snack-food option for a very long time.
Partly due to the increase in popularity of diets 'high in protein and low in fat' in recent years and due to the success of the Paleo Diet & Atkins Diet plus proven nutritional research, dried meat snacks, especially beef jerky, have quickly become the 'snack-of-choice' for a large proportion of people in almost every country around the planet ... and this popularity is growing at a truly astonishing rate for a very good reason.
Jack Link's Delicious range of high-quality meets next that have the nutrition of meat, with protein and energy and low fat.
It could be said that Jack Link's is the perfect snack-food to eat ... if you are serious about supercharging your unique and incredible life.
So maybe it's time for you to try some Jack Link's for yourself.
Meat snacks for the nutritional benefits of readily available minerals such as iron, calcium & protein.
JACK LINK'S NZ EXPORTS 94% OF IT BEEF SNACKS ALL OVER THE WORLD.
New Zealand plays a very important part in the overall success of the Jack Link's 'Global Snack-Food Revolution' and for very good reason.
Premium Quality NZ Beef is grass fed, healthier and has considerably less fat than beef from many other countries in the world and is welcomed by countries who have stringent food safety regulations.
To meet the needs of the New Zealand and the global marketplace Jack Link's NZ currently produces more than 100 tonnes (560,000 packets) of beef snacks – jerky, steak bars and beef sticks – a week, 94% of which is exported overseas.
With the rise of the much more beneficial 'high protein / low fat diet' combined with Premium New Zealand Beef and Kiwi Innovation, Jack Link's has created something unique in quality and taste, that the world has a very big appetite for.
100% PURE NZ BEEF
Jack Link’s buys export-grade beef from all of New Zealand’s major meat processors including Affco and Silver Fern Farms.
"We use 100 Visual Lean topside beef and we have a ready supply," says Jack Link's NZ - CEO - Maurice Crosby. "The jerky here is made from grass-fed beef that is low in fat. In the United States the cattle are grain fed and the beef is higher in fat content. It tastes good but it’s not as good for jerky."
Jack Link’s NZ operates a 3500 sq m, state-of-the-art factory near Auckland airport and after supplying the NZ marketplace exports 94% the meat-snacks it produces to Australia, Tahiti, Japan, Singapore, Korea, Vietnam, Europe and the Middle East, as well as the US.
Jack Link's NZ also supplies New Zealand, Australian, British and Norwegian armies, and they require a three-year shelf life, instead of 18 months, for the beef jerky.
The factory in Auckland was originally opened in July 2002 by Kiwi, Jack Corner who passed away in December 2008, at which point the American parent company took full ownership of the Auckland operation.
Under the leadership of CEO, Maurice Crosby, Jack Link’s New Zealand has positively grown at an average rate of 20 per cent a year since 2008.
