"Manaaki" means hospitality, kindness, generosity, support in Māori - the process of showing respect, generosity and care for others and how we make them feel welcome.
Manaaki is a social enterprise based at Omaka Marae in Blenheim, that that has been developed through a desire for the Marae to remain self sustaining, and therefore self determining.
Their dream is to preserve the skill of preserving and promote healthy lifestyles by sharing healthy natural kai, and to educate whānau about rongoa Māori (natural medicinal remedies). At the same time they are creating an opportunity for whānau to acquire the skills needed to produce, market and sell the marae products.
They are part of the young generation learning the traditional skills of preserving kai that their elders know so well, and we are proud to be able to share their delicious, handmade Manaaki condiments with as many homes as possible.
Horopito & Lemon sauce is Manaaki’s dairy free alternative to mayo and hollandaise sauce. It’s a fresh tasting, lively sauce with zesty citrus flavours, a peppery bite (from the horopito) and a smooth, silky texture. Horopito, also known as Bush Pepper, is unique to New Zealand. It has both aromatic and peppery flavours and, like kawakawa, has a history of use in Māori cuisine and medicine.
