Auckland makers and creators have plenty of inspiration when it comes to pickling, producing, fermenting and forming products for their community, and Auckland goods are in a league of their own when it comes to quality.

From beer to butter, cakes to cookies, Auckland goods makers know how important transparency is in the food business these days, and what easier way to see how something is made than simply talk to the person who made it. Frequently seen on cafe and restaurant shelves, and even stocking local supermarkets, those who make and create goods in Auckland have a massive target audience, but when the result is that good, the only risk is that supply is outstripped by demand. We don’t know about you, but if you’re a goods maker starting out small, that seems only a good problem to have.
