This will be a contact-less service. We will endeavour to deliver all orders between 11am and 4pm for orders placed the day before.

Delivery & Packaging: Delivery service will be completely contact-less. We ask customer on the day of delivery that they place a chilly bag with ice or equivalent inside their front gate. This enables us to eliminate the packaging cost.

Please Note: Some of the items are unavailable due to the supplier being closed down during this time.


Outside: Here at Coromandel Takeaways and Fresh Fish Ltd, we have endeavoured to use environmentally friendly packaging as much as we are able. Our external packaging is a product called a Chilltainer which is made from ‘specialised corrugated cardboard laminated with an impermeable reflective metallised polyester’.

The external reflective thermal coating ensures the contents inside – namely our fresh seafood products – stay chilled during delivery.


 Inside: Our packaging then is lined with a unique, compostable, eco-friendly insulating liner called Woolcool. As the name suggests, Woolcool uses wool as a natural ‘smart fibre’ in their environmentally friendly insulation. It works by sealing pure wool in a breathable film to create a ‘simply ingenious insulation for our food delivery boxes and pouches.’

 Ice: To keep things cool while in transit, we use reusable segmented ice pads that hold the temperature constant for longer than regular flaked ice, so less is needed, which helps us keep our packaging weight down, bringing you cheaper shipping costs.

Delivery: We take orders for delivery Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday only. Due to keeping with our policy of delivering the freshest of seafood to you, we do not courier orders on Friday or over the weekend as most courier companies do not deliver during this time. Orders must be placed by 2.00pm to receive overnight delivery to addresses based in the North Island of New Zealand (not including rural). Orders placed after 2.00pm will be posted for delivery the following day.

Currently, we do not deliver to the South Island due to market constraints.
