Tell Us A Little Something About Yourself
Indigenous Kiwi, mother of birds, goats, a cow and a human boy living near the beautiful Wilsons Promontory in South Gippsland.
What Inspired You To Start Your Own Business?
We had a kiosk and general store at the beach, we made our own ice cream, it became popular and we embarked on becoming ice cream producers for wholesale.
What Does Your Business Offer, And What Makes It Unique?
Single-serve cups and take-home tubs of super premium ice cream and sorbet.
What Does Your Journey Look Like?
We started in a mixed retail business, experimenting with making frozen desserts and trying them out on customers. We are now producers supplying multiple shops and hospitality venues and work with two distributors.
Did You Always Think You'd Be Doing This?
No. Interior Design Design or Fine Art Not my calling!
What Are The Most Rewarding And Challenging Parts Of Your Job And Owning Your Own Business?
Establishing relationships with customers and suppliers. Knowing that lots of people enjoy our product. Trying not to freak out at hurdles because having a small business is sometimes very scary.
Whats Your End Goal? The Moment You'll Know You've Achieved What You Want To?
Having raised a sellable asset from seed to a bountiful plant.
