How do I store Maison Therese products, do they require refrigeration?

All products require refrigeration after opening apart from the Vinaigrettes, please store these at ambient.

Where are Maison Therese products produced?

All our products are produced in small batches in Hawke’s Bay.

Why do the Pickled Onions have yellow spotting on them?

The yellow spotting on the Onions is a natural enzyme on the Onion in the ground. As the Onion matures the yellow spotting becomes more obvious. The only way to eliminate this issue is to use preservatives or sulphites, Maison Therese chooses to be preservative and sulphite free. This is not a food safety issue and will not alter the taste profile of the product.

Is your packaging recyclable?

Our glass jars and metal caps are recyclable.
