  • Supplier Profile: Molly Woppy

    Molly Woppy began 20 years ago in the home kitchen of Alistair Parker and Hayley Molloy. Alistair was a chef in a top Auckland restaurant when customers started asking where they could purchase his fabulous biscotti that they’d all fallen in love with. That’s when they baked up a plan and Molly Woppy began. Juggling a baby, toddler, and full-time chef job, they made their biscotti at home and sold it into cafes.

    Today they uphold the same quality and principles as when they first began. From their humble beginnings (think commercial oven in the home kitchen), Molly Woppy has grown into a loved and trusted kiwi brand. From melt-in-your-mouth shortbread to their iconic gingerbread, they are known for simple classic recipes like you would weigh, mix and scoop at home. Molly Woppy has always been an inclusive brand, recognising the need to cater to those often left out of the biscuit market. It has offered a much-loved gluten-free range since 2005. The recently released, award-winning, positively plant-based cookies were released in 2021 to rave reviews.

    They are passionate about baking hand-crafted goods using ethical and locally sourced ingredients - NZ butter, free range eggs and real chocolate, but their most genuine and core ingredient is that they are 100% made with love. Their cookies are jammed-packed full of premium ingredients so that you fall in Love at First Bite® with them. They want every mouthful to be just as scrumptious as the next.

    One of their core values is to be as sustainable as possible without compromising on quality. Supporting local and sharing the love is what Molly Woppy is all about. Their premium range of award-winning cookies has delighted Kiwis for the last 20 years, and they are excited about what’s next … of course, we know it will be 100% drool-worthy – watch this space!

  • Supplier Profile: Fix & Fogg

    Fix & Fogg began when founders, Roman and Andrea Jewell, made the choice to leave behind corporate life to dedicate their time and energy into creating something meaningful, sustainable, and delicious. They decided to make the “world's best nut butters”.

    “We’re honoured that our nut butters have now won awards worldwide and we’re lucky enough to now have amazing stockists not only in New Zealand but across the world in Australia, the United States, China, Singapore, the Philippines, Samoa and even Tahiti!”

    Fix & Fogg believe their award-winning nut butters are so popular because people can taste the difference in a product that’s made by people who care about quality and innovation.

    Fix & Fogg's mission is about trying new things, improving the community and making beautiful nut butters. They're nuts about other things too. Such as working with charities supporting vulnerable communities, as they believe in giving back to the community that supports them.

    Fix & Fogg believe in doing their bit for the environment and are proud to be the first New Zealand owned food manufacturer to be awarded B Corp certification. Fix & Fogg places a big focus on reducing food waste, our carbon footprint and recycling. Fix & Fogg products are NON-GMO, vegan friendly and Palm Oil Free since forever.

    Fix & Fogg support charities for vulnerable communities such as food banks, city missions across New Zealand (and now the USA) and women’s refuge. They're also proud to be one of only a few food manufacturers in New Zealand that is Living Wage accredited. Because Fix & Fogg believe, happy people make the best nut butters.

  • Supplier Profile: Greystone Wines

    GREYSTONE WINES: New Zealand's first winery to be certified carbon zero!

    From Waipara, North Canterbury, Greystone is the first winery in New Zealand to be certified net carbon zero. Also certified organic with BioGro and practising regenerative viticulture, but above all Greystone are known for producing a broad range of handcrafted, exceptional and completely delicious wines!

    After searching the world for the perfect place to grow cool-climate wines, the Thomas family established Greystone Vineyard on the slopes of the Teviotdale hills in the Waipara Valley in 2004.

    In 2007 the first wine was produced from there and over the years Greystone has grown amid accolades and acclaim to be recognised as one of New Zealand’s best wineries. The owners love the region and with their wines, aim to capture the essence of this site and reflect this in every bottle of Greystone.

    Greystone draws its name from the unique limestone conglomerate that we find as the bedrock on which our vine roots grow in. A limestone mix of fossils, sea shells and small pebbles that have been fused together through the seismic movement of North Canterbury. Over time this ancient seabed has been pushed and folded upwards to form the Teviotdale Hills.

    Greystone believe true fine wines are temporal, each vintage a fleeting snapshot of a place in time. They don’t seek to manipulate the final product with additives or flavourings – instead allow a true interpretation of the soil, vines and season to shine through.

    Greystone revel in protecting the land. The many ecological benefits of organic practices include healthy soils, healthy waterways, biodiversity, and a safe place for bees and other beneficial insects. The use of natural products throughout production provides a safe and happy work environment for their dedicated team. “We see our commitment to organic winegrowing as a bigger picture collaboration with our plant towards a more stable climate and sustainable ecosystem.”

    At Moore Wilson’s we sell a range of Greystone wines including their Pétillant Naturel, a non-disgorged natural bubbles that is intensely refreshing with fresh and lively aromatics of pineapple, lemon balm and citrus fruits.  This wine is thought by Greystone to perfectly capture the limestone soils of their hillside block.

  • Supplier Profile: McCashin's Brewery

    McCashin's Brewery, previously known as Mac’s Brewery, is a brewery based in Nelson, New Zealand. It was founded in 1980 by Terry McCashin, who produced the well-known Mac's beer. Today McCashin’s owns Rochdale Cider and Stoke Beer.

    The original McCashin’s Brewery officially opened in 1981. Terry hoped that his influence would keep the big breweries from attacking his venture. It has been said that the success of the McCashins was based as much on determination as it was on brewing good beer.

    The Brewery began producing the first unsweetened beer brewed in New Zealand for quite some time, as well as other types which had never been seen here. The McCashins’ success inspired a new generation of brewers to set up micro-breweries to meet the growing demand for a greater variety of beer.

    Stoke Beer

    Terry sold the Mac’s beer brand to Lion Nathan in 1999.  Lion leased the Nelson brewery for ten years before shifting the remaining production to Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. Dean, Terry’s oldest son and his wife Emma moved to Nelson in April 2009 and re-opened the Brewery, then launched Stoke Beer in 2010.  The name Stoke pays homage to the location of original McCashin’s Brewery, 660 Main Road, Stoke, Nelson.

    Rochdale Cider

    The Rochdale Cider factory in Stoke was started in the late 1930's. Stoke was the perfect location for a cidery because it was surrounded by apple orchards. In 1951 a cider factory and offices were added and apples were juiced and fermented on-site.

    The popularity of cider began to decline as that of wine was increasing quickly. By the late 1970s Rochdale Cider was the only remaining cidery still operating in New Zealand (there had once been four in Stoke alone). By 1980 it had closed. It was bought by Terry and Bev McCashin that same year, who re-opened it and continued to make Rochdale Cider. McCashin’s Brewery was opened on the same site in 1981.

    We have an extensive range of Stoke beers and Rochdale ciders in store and online.

     

  • Supplier Profile: Garage Project

    Garage Project is an independent brewery based in Aro Valley, Wellington. Founded in 2011 inside an old petrol station, Garage Project brought commercial brewing back to the Wellington city with the lofty goal of changing beer forever. From humble beginnings brewing just 50 litres at a time, the brewery is now one of the largest and revered independent breweries in Australasia.

    From it’s earliest days, Garage Project has had a strong connection to Moore Wilson’s - originally as a source for brewing ingredients and flavour inspiration, and now as a valued trade partner. The team brewed together out the front of Fresh on the original 50L pilot system, and later collaborated on a celebration Centennial Ale to toast the Moore Wilson’s 100th anniversary.

    Garage Project celebrates it’s own 10th anniversary this year, and aspires to be building a brewery and business with a legacy the likes of Moore Wilson’s. To date the brewery has created over 400 different beers, and counting. From firm favourites like Hāpi Daze, Fugazi and BEER, through to boundary pushing beers like Umami Monster and Mecha Hop.

    In 2016, Garage Project opened it’s Wild Workshop site on Marion Street, a home to wild and spontaneously fermented beers. Aged for several years in barrels and blended with local fruits, the Wild Workshop takes it’s inspiration from ancient techniques, brought forward into the modern brewing era.

  • Supplier Profile: Ant McKenzie Wines

    Ant Mackenzie has been involved in the wine industry for over 20 years. During that time he has done pretty much everything - from pruning grape vines to running wineries. His journey has had him working for small, boutique wineries through to some of New Zealand’s largest.

    Eight years ago Ant embarked on a venture to produce wines under various creative brands. The best known of which is Theory & Practice, a well-loved emerging brand from Hawke’s Bay. Alongside Theory & Practice there are two series produced under the “Toño” and “Alluviale” labels. Toño being the nickname Ant – Antony was given whilst making wine in Spain and Alluviale coming from the name of the soils that the grapes are grown in for that range.

    An exciting new development is a collaboration project called Cognoscente Wine Workshop with long-time friend and wine distributor Jeannine McCallum. These wines are produced with a special focus on harmony and a sensory compatibility with food.

    Ant believes each wine within a range contributes to a story or an experience.  Grouping similar wine stories together under different brands gives us a bookshelf of different wine experiences. Much as you like picking different books of the shelf at different times and for different moods he hopes that the same will happen with these series of wines.

    So we have Theory & Practice as a Hawke’s Bay regional and varietal story, capturing the flavours of the region and the year by sourcing fruit across the region. Toño is also from Hawke’s Bay but explores the Spanish grape varietals and how they tell a different story of Hawke’s Bay but viewed through another lens. Alluviale is a classic range of blended wines based on the famous five Bordeaux red varieties and the two white varietals. These wines speak of tradition, excellence in the winemaking art and of course the Hawke’s Bay terroir. Finally we have the Cognoscente wines which are made specifically to enhance the sensory experience of eating and spending time with friends.
