We’re delighted to announce one of the first Local Food Startup Challenge entrants has just launched!
Good Neighbour brings good food to local people in Tauranga, Bay of Plenty, Aotearoa New Zealand. By operating their food delivery enterprise, they’re able to build the fabric of the community from the grassroots and reinvest their profits in other community-based programs.
Good Neighbour Produce Boxes launched last week with nearly 30 large orders. So far the feed back has been all positive with many loving the fresh quality and value in each box. Most of all the great advantage is not only saving money or supporting good healthy eating but backing the Good Neighbour Vision of helping those struggling in our community through sincere love in action. We aim to put all our profits back into our communities through funds raised in this way. Once we get our fruit boxes up and running we will focus on the community projects targeted at people in need. In the process of helping others the dream is that others will begin to get to know their neighbours and in some way be able to say “We have a friend just over the fence”
– Cam Hill, Good Neighbour Founder
We’re proud to be supporting a fantastic social enterprise like Good Neighbour, and it feels fitting that one of the first startups to launch is here in our home of New Zealand. That said, we’ve had lots of interest from overseas for the pilot of our Startup Challenge, so who knows where the next launch will come from!
Good Neighbour were one of the organisations we connected with early in their development when they were modeling how to get set up and running. We were excited to be able to work with them to provide the IT infrastructure to manage their order, customer accounts, packing & delivery logistics and payment reconciliation.
You can visit Good Neighbour’s website here, Facebook page, or get your good local food in Tauranga at their Bucky Box powered webstore.
