WE’RE PROUD OF OUR BEGINNINGS
Originally started by Gerard Hall after he graduated with his food technology degree. His mother was ill and drinking some imported Lemon & Barley cordial and thought it could be done better. She asked Gerard to make one like they used to have as kids on the farm.….which he did. Gerard’s recipe is inspired by his grandmother’s original recipe. The recipe he developed was about creating something that tasted great and was authentic.
ONTO A GOOD THING
Knowing he was onto a good thing, Gerard originally made batches in his kitchen for friends and family. After hounding from Gerard’s parents the first official batch was made in Gerard’s house – around about a dozen bottles. Local supermarkets began to stock the range and it took off.
After undergoing a few evolutions over the years, we are proud to say that Baker Halls & Co is a down to earth kiwi brand, run with the same passion and enthusiasm as when it was started back in 1987. We’ve picked up Gerard’s legacy and intend to continue with his quest for great tasting batch made fruit syrups.
