Our Company

Jayen Food Concepts Ltd was formed in 1997 by John Neal and his partner Jan Turner.  John’s daughter Leanne Prujean along with her husband Mark have taken the helm in 2016, ensuring the company remains proudly New Zealand owned and operated.

Our branded food systems, Top Taste Chicken ‘N’ Chips and Charleez Chicken & Chips, are an easy, cost-effective hot food option for retail stores.  With over 200 outlets nationally, and growing, the company has a wealth of knowledge in the ‘hot food on the run’ industry.

We created Cosmo’s cooking ingredients which include a variety of great flavoured seasonings, dairy-free coating, gluten-free instant potato mash mix and chicken gravy mix.  We are always working hard to develop more tasty cooking ingredients to satisfy your hunger.

We also provide kitchenware, food handling tools, takeaway packaging, cleaning products and catering equipment installation, making us a one-stop service in the hospitality industry.
