Love HEART Christmas Puddings The Gourmet Merchant

Why you'll love our Christmas Puddings

Why everyone loves our Christmas Puddings

What makes our Christmas Puddings the first choice for so many fine food retailers and hamper and corporate gift companies

From production all the way through to delivery, we’ve got it sorted - and have done for more than twenty years

1. We are HACCP accredited.

Our Christmas Puddings are made by us in our kitchen to full HACCP accreditation.

In fact we were one of the first food companies to pursue and gain HACCP accreditation.

2 The finest local and imported ingredients.

We use the best local and imported ingredients in our Christmas Puddings.

Some of those ingredients include treats like Grand Marnier, Galliano, Cointreau - and of course Gippsland’s very own Hatlifter Stout.

3. Scrumptious Traditional and Contemporary Christmas Pudding Recipes.

Product development has always been central to what we do at The Gourmet Merchant.

In our own kitchens we make some classic Christmas Pudding masterpieces, but also some great contemporary style puddings for people who prefer something different.

And there are gluten-free options as well

4. Christmas Puddings in Brilliant award-winning packaging.

Sure, we have some traditional presentations such as Christmas Puddings in Cloth and in Hessian, but our packaged Christmas Puddings have real eye-grabbing power for our retail clients.

And there’s no more to be done if you’re looking for striking corporate gifts or something extra special for your hampers.

BTW, call us on 03 9459 1033 to see how we can customise your corporate gifts with your company id.

5. Service

We have worked with major retailers, smaller food outlets, specialty retailers, food service, corporate gift and hamper companies for many many years, making sure their Christmas is a happy one.

We know the pressure they are under, and we are geared up to get our products to them when they need them.

Celebrating our Christmas Puddings

Celebrating our Christmas Puddings

Our “Partridge in a Pear Tree” packaging for our Christmas puddings, cakes and other Christmas goodies have won a Packaging Council Award.

We were the first company to package our Christmas Puddings in gorgeous presentation boxes.

Prior to our entry into the market place, all competitive Christmas Puddings were presented in a very traditional, "cottagey" presentation, with calico and ribbons.

We set the standard which now many others have followed.

Our award winning packaging has enabled our products to become the focal point for instore displays in retail stores such as David Jones.


We were the first Australian producer selling Christmas Puddings to Harvey Nichols and Selfridges, London.

At that stage, we were the only Australian producer selling Christmas Puddings, Great Australian Puddings, Chocolate Truffle and Fig and Walnut puddings into these retailers.

We were also approached by Harrods, Englands most famous retail brand, to produce private label Christmas Puddings and Cakes for them.


Nigella Lawson loves our Christmas Puddings

Nigella Lawson, the domestic goddess, wanted us to produce here in Australia private label Christmas Cakes and Christmas Puddings for her.

The only reason that did not go ahead, was the tyranny of distance, producing and transporting from Australia, paying the EU tariffs etc, made the project financially unviable.

Maybe Brexit will make it feasible.


Many of our Christmas Puddings and desserts really do contain Grand Marnier, Cointreau and Galliano

And speaking of quality, we hold international licences from the makers of Grand Marnier, Marnier Lapostolle to proudly bear the famous Grand Marnier trademark on our range of Chocolate Truffle Desserts (flavoured with Grand Marnier).

We hold similar licences from Remy Martin for products using Cointreau, and from the makers of the aromatic Italian liqueur Galliano for a range of desserts, cakes and dessert sauces.

We are very proud to be partnered with these internationally renowned names.


Our Chocolate Truffle Dessert has had a Royal Command Performance

Our wonderful Chocolate Truffle Dessert flavoured with Grand Marnier has been served to the Prince of Wales, Prince Charles and (then) Camilla Parker-Bowles at an Anglo Australian function in London, with apparently unanimous delight.
