STAR FOOD SERVICE

Star Food Service is a proudly New Zealand owned and operated family business.

The Star brand originated from the Claudatos family and compromised of Star Food Service and Star Fish Supply. Star Fish Supply is still owned within the Claudatos family with Star Food Service being the key fish supplier for the Hawkes Bay and Taupo markets.

Star Food Service was purchased by the Owen Family in 2021. From the humble beginnings back in the 1980s, with a back yard full of chillers and freezers, Richard & Gillian Owen serviced the Gisborne region from a small truck delivering to the wholesale food market.

Today, the family group employs over 50 staff across Gisborne, Hawkes Bay & the Taupo regions. Now the next generation of foodies, sons Wade and Kurt Owen, are strengthening their family legacy, with the acquisition of Star Food Service in Napier and Taupo Premium Foods in Taupo.

Collectively the Owen Family of businesses cover nearly a quarter of the North Island of New Zealand. First Light frozen in the North, cover Gisborne and the East Cape through to Opotiki, Taupo Premium Foods encompass Taupo and the central plateau, and Star Food Service incorporating the Hawkes Bay region as south as Dannevirke. The Owen family are not corporate, they operate on strong family values, and they understand small business and real business relationships.
