It’s tough right now for so many people in our communities. It’s heart-breaking to know that here in our back yard, food security is the crisis on top of the crisis.
It’s why we are so thankful for our food relief partners, the many frontline charities and the thousands of people who are making a difference in our communities. We are here to support them and they inspire us to do all we can to help.
Our manufacturing and supply teams are doing an outstanding job of keeping up with demand and it means a lot to them to know that their hard work means we now have capacity to donate products to those in need. Where they can, our staff are volunteering in communities to help distribute healthy food. This is what connects us to our community and it brings us together during this time.
We’ve been working with Kiwiharvest, a local organisation whose mission is to take donated food from local businesses and distribute it to organisations all across New Zealand that help people in need. To find out more or if you’d like to volunteer or provide a cash donation, please visit www.kiwiharvest.org.nz
As we work to support New Zealanders through this crisis, we’ll share some of the stories with you here. It's a privilege to share the food we make to others on your behalf. Thank you for your support. We’re making a difference together.

In the meantime, eat well, keep active, sleep soundly and stay socially connected. You keep your spirits up, and we’ll keep the healthy food coming.
