Munch empowers South Auckland mums into work

Munch empowers South Auckland mums into work

Waste Free Warrior Tania Webb believes that "Empowered women empower women" and "I truly believe Munch and us represent this".

Munch is working with a team of South Auckland mums who are in need of part-time work. Munch offers these mums part-time work that can be completed in their own homes. Munch has implemented the traditional ‘outwork model’ through the use of new technologies to empower those who need a ‘hand up’. The work provided by Munch enables them to contribute financially to their families and lift their self-esteem.

This employment model will be rolled out in other under-employed locations later this year.

Demand for Munch Reusable Food Wraps has increased significantly with the introduction of a subscription based service and because of growth in export demand. This increased demand has enabled Munch to create these part-time roles in South Auckland.

Munch, a sustainable eco social enterprise and its sister brand Nil export their New Zealand made organic beeswax wraps to Australia, United States, Canada, UK, and Europe.
