We are proud to support so many small New Zealand businesses, we love that so many of our products are made with love and care by the owners of the business. We also love that supporting New Zealand businesses means the money spent stays local and helps support other small businesses - it’s a great cycle.
Long before starting Providore Market I have made an active effort to buy New Zealand made and to shop local as much as possible. Although budget doesn’t always allow us to shop local, simple things like shopping at farmers markets or only buying NZ grown fruit from the supermarket can make a huge difference to the amount of NZ products you purchase.
The basis of Providore Market is to support other New Zealand businesses, we are a small NZ business, and every dollar spent with us means we can support other small businesses.
Buy NZ Made day is the 21st of November - the challenge for this day is to buy one NZ made product you haven’t purchased before. I would challenge you to replace one product a month with a NZ made product, it might not always be the cheapest or the easiest to find or the most convenient, but purchasing NZ made makes a difference to other New Zealanders.
