Wild Heart is 100% locally sourced and consciously crafted with rescued and repurposed ingredients.
WITHWILD Fiordland Wapiti Venison Patty: Comes from the heart of the Fiordland National Park where, every year, wild introduced Wapiti deer are culled to help protect precious native flora and fauna through WITHWILD and the Fiordland Wapiti Foundation deer management programme. A dollar from every burger sold will be donated to support the park's conservation.
Rescued Central Otago Cherry Sauce: Made from (otherwise export quality) blemished cherries grown in the Central Otago.
Rescued Wonky Pukekohe Carrots: Shredded from split, wonky carrots that would otherwise go to waste.
Rescued Artisan Buns: Made with 4% spent-grain flour, the nutritious by-product of Citizens craft beer brewing process, part of their award-winning circular solution for upcycling wasted or unsold bread. With no compromise on taste, our Rescued Artisan Buns have that recognisable home-made, wholesome flavour.
Update: Due to the experimental nature of the above process, we have come up against some issues with our rescued buns and are working to resolve this. For the time being, we will be supplying BurgerFuel wholemeal buns in order to ensure that our customers receive only the best product until this issue is resolved.
Rescued Cherry Cola: Combining dark, rich, vibrant flavours with rescued Central Otago cherries and rum wash (the by-product botanicals from rum making). A Citizen and BurgerFuel collaboration that is perfectly paired with Wild Heart.
HELP US RESCUE
Reducing food waste is one way we can play our part in climate change and every little action makes a difference. Help us sell out of this special burger and collectively we could rescue 4.3tonnes of wild Fiordland Wapiti, 102,000kgs of Citizen Central Otago cherries (between our Cherry sauce and Rescued Cola), 300kgs of broken Pukekohe carrots,160kgs of repurposed Citizen spent-grain flour, and every can of Rescued Cherry Cola will save 29 perfectly good cherries from going to waste.
