Here's a brief overview of the projects that we are currently involved with:
Mānuka Essentials - personal care that you can feel good about. We develop and market a beautiful and effective range of plant based personal care products that use East Cape mānuka oil as the key ingredient.
Mānuka Sensations - sensational natural wellbeing products. While this project is in the earlier stages of development, our current product range is focused on essential oils and essential oil blends that use mānuka and kānuka oils as key ingredients. Moving forward, we plan to invest a larger amount of resources into growing our Mānuka Sensations product range.
Bulk native ingredients supply - we distribute a small but growing selection of native plant extracts and supply them to businesses around the country. These companies currently include soap supply stores, essential oil retail businesses and other product-based brands. As a distributor, you will have access to our bulk native ingredients to offer to customers in your region.
The Brand Incubator - we are in the early stages of setting up a product innovation lab and operations hub. This business will take over our product development, production, logistics and sourcing functions. Through this offering, we can help your customers to create their own ethical and sustainable brands, and do all of the hard work to empower their success.
Paste & Publish - this is our in-house marketing agency. Our core strengths at Paste & Publish are content, storytelling and sales funnels. We cover a wide range of disciplines, including strategy, branding, research, planning, writing, design, advertising, web development, social media, SEO, conversion rate optimisation, campaign management and more. We are nimble and constantly changing to suit the rapidly evolving marketing landscape.
The Reforestation Fund - this is how we give back to the environment. Every time we sell a product, we donate a small amount to TRF (we donate 50 cents from most items). These funds are used to support local environmental projects that plant native trees and look after our biodiversity. We are currently going through the process of preparing this project for the official launch.
In addition to these projects, we also have a range of brands in development and partnerships in place for the near future. We will be launching offerings around native plant based food and beverage, cleaning products, fragrances and more. We are also working with an international organisation to develop products out of a special coffee extract.
By focusing on development and marketing, and working with the right people for distribution, we can change the agricultural landscape of New Zealand and establish the native plants industry as a major contributor to the economy.
