European small goods and other culinary treats are being served up in Mosgiel.

Deep Creek Deli founder Simon Tiefenbach is opening a store in Gordon Rd this week.

He said he was excited about catering to the developing Taieri population.

''The opportunity to be in Mosgiel is great, as I've always had an eye on the town. It's a growing area and doesn't really have a deli like us. We're a bit of a mix between a butcher shop and a deli with over 300 different products.''

Mr Tiefenbach moved to New Zealand about 10 years ago from Germany, where he obtained a master's degree in butchery.

He established Deep Creek Deli from a mobile trailer in Wanaka and after a few years moved to Dunedin, opening his first shop in Northeast Valley on December 1, 2011.

Since then, he has opened a second shop in South Dunedin. The Mosgiel store is his third.

He recently sold the mobile trailer to a franchisee, who will travel throughout the South Island spreading the Deep Creek Deli brand full-time.

''What we do is a bit different to other butchers. We specialise in European small goods and make a lot of different products, and we also sell hundreds of deli items imported from overseas.''

Mr Tiefenbach was proud of the many awards his products had won. He said many of the products were gluten-free and all were made from quality meat, including free-range pork and poultry.

''We won the 2010 supreme award for best sausage in New Zealand, which I hold the recipe for, and have three gold medals as well as quite a few silver and bronze. This year our black pudding was named best in the South Island and won a silver national award.''

Mr Tiefenbach said he would give $1 to charity for every customer who bought something in the Mosgiel store this month. The money would be distributed to charities in the Taieri area.
