Morepork is a nice natural take on a sauce that is traditionally packed full of third party ingredients, cheap sweeteners, thickeners and liquid smoke. In this sauce we’ve used natural and unrefined sweeteners, fresh onion and garlic and we’ve smoked our onions in Manuka to give a natural smoke flavour. It’s gluten free and vegan and is primarily made from NZ produced ingredients. It tastes like a real bbq sauce should!
