Our Story
Kaan’s are proud to be Otago’s largest, privately family owned and operated wholesale food distribution business. We carry over 3000 products and directly import items from all over the world to meet your food service requirements. Here at Kaan’s we employ over 160 team members and operate over 80 delivery vehicles from North Canterbury to Bluff and everywhere in between. We have depots and branches in Dunedin, Invercargill, Central Otago, Timaru, and Christchurch.

We know fresh is best and therefore we have our team buying daily from both local markets and all over NZ to ensure you are getting the freshest possible ingredients. Take advantage of our in-house vegetable processing & butchery facilities that will help you reduce your kitchen prep time, food wastage and wage costs.

At Kaan’s we speak your language, literally! We value cultural differences, and our ethnic department prides itself on offering services in Cantonese, Mandarin, Thai & Indian. This ensures we can easily help all customers meet their requirements.

In 2020 we moved from our original premises of over 25 years in Willis Street Dunedin, to our new, purpose-built facilities at 6 Kitchener Street. This has enabled us to not only offer a more efficient delivery service but also increase our onsite stock levels and bring you exciting new products from a wide range of suppliers.

At Kaan’s our beliefs are simple. We believe in providing customers with all their hospitality needs, at a competitive price. We are proud to be a local company supporting local NZ businesses.

To give back to our supportive community, Kaan’s Catering Supplies proudly supports the Otago and Southland Hospices. We have also been a part of special Rigs for kids for more than 18 years.
