Te Horo Foods does it again!

Te Horo Foods does it again!


Hot on the heels of winning the 2014 MiNDFOOD Wellington on a Plate established producer of the year, Te Horo foods has been named as a finalist in the prestigious 2014 New Zealand Food Awards.

Recognising excellence, The New Zealand Food Awards, in association with Massey University, recognise innovation and excellence by our largest export sector.

Popular Kapiti Coast business, Te Horo foods is the only Kapiti Coast business making the list of Finalists. There were 102 entries submitted by 31 companies vying for the top honours across 13 categories.

The finalists were announced at a cocktail evening hosted at Villa Maria Wines Estate in Auckland on Thursday 4 September.

Judge Ray McVinnie says that of the wide range of entries submitted, his tastebuds kept tingling at traditionally-based foods.

“I think the best food products always have some connection to tradition. People who are completely familiar with the rules before they break them often seem to make the best stuff. Food like this, I am sure, will become future mainstream kiwi products and are a credit to intelligent producers.”

Te Horo Foods founder, Tim Gibbs said: “being a finalist in The NZ Foods Awards is a great achievement for our company. What it gives us is independent recognition that our Jams and Marmalades are up there with the best food products in NZ. It also helps us to play our part in telling the Kapiti Coast story”

Founded in 2010, Te Horo foods has won a number of awards

In 2010, Te Horo foods won the Regional Branding and Promotion category award in the Kapiti Horowhenua Business Awards. In the same year Te Horo Foods was presented the New Zealand Foods Awards Grocer's Choice Award and in 2012, Te Horo foods’ popular Raspberry Jam won the Cuisine Artisan award.

And what a run. This week Te Horo Foods was also named as a finalist in The Electra Kapiti Horowhenua Business Awards small business excellence category.

ENDS.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
