It’s been a very busy and exciting year for Fix & Fogg. The Wellington-based peanut butter makers expanded into supermarkets across the North and South Island, even crossing the ditch to hit David Jones stores in Australia.
Demand skyrocketed, prompting the business to invest in new machinery and open a larger production facility around the corner from their original tasting window on Eva Street.
“We love the vibrancy and community of city life in Wellington, and we wanted to keep our production in a place where customers and tourists could come and see us in action,” said Thom Brooks, general manager, Fix & Fogg. “We are looking forward to rolling up our sleeves and settling into our new production space.”
The team has also expanded to nine people with two new faces, Ben and Audrey, coming on board to help out. Environmentally and socially committed, the company has just signed a partnership with local NGO Change Makers, who are helping young refugees settle into life in New Zealand. “Shortly we’ll be welcoming our first intern, Homasa, a super lovely enthusiastic person from Syria, and teaching her how to make delicious peanut butter.”
