  • Supplier Profile: Kitchen Six

    Kitchen Six

    Kitchen Six Christmas puddings are made with a traditional family recipe that has been tweaked a little to get as much of the Hawkes Bay in there as they can. Living next to an orange farm on the coast has influenced the recipe and there is a heavy element of citrus in there – this lifts the pudding and makes it super moist. It also makes it quite unique without taking it very far from the traditional.

    They’re made batch by batch in a small commercial kitchen in Onekawa, Napier.

    The puddings are vine-fruit rich and steeped in brandy and stout made in the Hawkes Bay.

    They amazingly moist and light but somehow dense at the same time, not overly sweet and simply bursting with the flavour from just the right mix of spices and  the perfect amount of ‘booziness’ to it.

    Moore Wilson's stock various sizes of Kitchen Six Christmas puddings.

  • Supplier profile: Blue Frog Cereal

    Founder Scotty Baragwanath has always shared a fascination with food. From the tender age of 5 when Scotty unwrapped his first fry-pan, to over 20 years of experience as food technologist. Scotty has now applied his passion for extraordinarily delicious tasting food that is good for you, to the most important meal of the day with his breakfast range.

    Scotty Baragwanath adopted the nickname 'frog' from a fairly young age, thanks to being naturally tall with long limbs. When he decided to leave his job as a high-profile research and development manager at one of the world's largest confectionary companies, he did so with the goal of bringing the tastiest muesli possible with the finest ingredients to market. He's given himself entirely to the project, including his nickname, prefaced by blue because "it's a bold, strong colour".

    Blue Frog Breakfast is a premium breakfast business with big ambitions. Their mission is to liven up people’s breakfast experience with wholesome, innovative and nourishing choices. Why eat boring when breakfast can be Cerealsy Good?

    Most recently we have added their Apricot Hemp cereal to the market showing they are truly on trend.

  • Supplier Profile: Forrest Estate Wine

    Just outside of Renwick, in Marlborough, John and Brigid Forrest have been crafting wines since the late 1980’s.

    A pair of dedicated Doctors with a yearning to find something new, they kept asking “what’s next?” And their curiosity led them to the traditions of winemaking and the idea that wine’s future lay in mixing the old ways with something new. The creative seed that would grow to be The Doctors’ range was planted when they decided to lower the alcohol content to up the enjoyment factor.

    Returning to family roots and generations of farming in the Marlborough region seemed a natural progression for the couple after successful careers in scientific research and medicine. The young family returned from living and working overseas amongst the burgeoning wine industries of California and South Australia to get a start on a fairly green New Zealand wine industry.

    The first vintage for Forrest Wines came in 1990, when an over-filled red wine fermenter “accident” resulted in a trophy winner Merlot Rosé.

    Fast forward 30 years; many awards and accolades, various labels and vineyards across the country. Forrest is set for generations.

  • Supplier Profile: The Brothers Coldpress

    The Brothers Coldpress 

    Owners Roger Young and Potti Wagstaff arrived in the cold press juice business a little by accident. Their busy Fidel’s café was pumping out juices using an old school centrifugal juicer but it just wasn’t keeping up with demand. With no other options they decided to make batches of juice each morning using Roger’s Hurom press. They couldn’t believe the difference. A far superior juice that wasn’t half liquid, half fluff. Just pure organic goodness.

    They decided right then that ‘coldpress is best’ and have never looked back.

    After a road trip around the west coast of America sampling juices, the boys were convinced that Wellington was ready for the good stuff.

    And so The Brothers Coldpress was born.

    The Coldpress Method explained
    First they wash the freshest organic and locally sourced produce they can find in a mixture of filtered water and organic apple cider vinegar to remove any contaminants from its journey from the field to our fridge.  It's then chopped and pressed under 12 tonnes of hydraulic pressure to extract every last drop of juicey goodness along with all the precious nutrients that usually get lost in the process of 'juicing'.

    What’s the difference between cold pressed and other freshly squeezed juice?
    The spinning blade of a centrifugal juicer generates heat and exposes the fruit and vegetables to lots of oxygen which damages the enzymes and makes them deteriorate faster.  By pressing the produce instead, the delicate enzymes and vitamins remain intact resulting in a nutritionally superior beverage.  Fresh juice tastes great regardless – cold pressed is just better for you.

    Why does it separate?
    Because they don't use any stabilisers and fruit and vegetables contain a lot of water.  The sediment is the nutrients, vitamins, minerals and a little bit of fibre and they are naturally heavier, so sink to the bottom when the juice sits for a while. Just give it a good shake before you drink it.

    The Brothers Coldpress fresh juices are delivered daily to Moore Wilson’s Fresh Tory St.
