HAVE YOU CHANGED THE PACKAGING?


Yes. In 2017, our New Zealand manufacturers ceased producing Christmas puddings in tins. The puddings are now produced in a recyclable plastic bowl which is sealed with foil for excellent freshness. We then package the bowl in an exclusive presentation cardboard cylinder with a lid. It looks superb and makes a very attractive gift.
