She Is A thing Of Beauty (and convenience too)
After months of preparation, emails and headaches, here she is, landed on our country's soil and ready for you to make your own.
Our Flagon Reusable Bottle
The idea behind these bottles was to not just provide our cutomers with something that would allow them to take home a decent quantity (just under 2 liters) of our delicious Extra Virgin Olive Oil at a convenient price (i.e. domestic Bulk EVOO) but to also do it in style, with a nice object for the kitchen.
So here she is.
And we think she is pretty gorgeous...if we can say so ourselves.
We had our first sales last Saturday at Matakana Village Farmers Market and the consensus from everyone there was that she is a show stopper. So many people wanted to have a closer look and hold her (she's made of nice solid glass).
The fact that she also gets refilled everytime you like with our tasty EVOO (kept in stainless steel containers at its freshest) just makes it an irressistible proposition.
So lots of interest and good vibes from the Farmers Market crowd (and a pat on the back to us for getting a job done).
More over, to make things even easier for you, our customers we now also have a state of the art Eftpos/Cerdit Card facility which works by attaching a card reader to our phone.
Marvels of technology, and it works pretty well too! We swiftly managed all card transactions on Saturday and are very excited to be among the very first users of this new ANZ service.
So from now on we will be able to offer even more convenience to all of our customers (no more long cues at the Eftpos Machine in Matakana) and a biger range of products for you to choose from.
Our NEW Domestic Bulk service will be available every Saturday at Matakana Village Farmers Market and soon in two selected location one in Auckland city and the other on the North Shore where you will be able to refill your beautiful Flagon Bottles anytime you need.
If however you are in a hurry to get one before next Saturday, come and see us at Gourmet Heaven on 8 Anzac street in Takapuna (Yes! It is a NEW shop opening its door on Monday) on Thursday November 5th, from 11am to 2pm. We will be there with all our gear giving tastings of our fabulous EVOO and information on us (as well as selling Flagon Bottles and Refills) to all customers. Come and see us, have a chat, a dip in our EVOO and perhaps become an EVOO expert (if you are not already).
So if you want to buy straight from your backyard grower, if you like the idea of recicling your container, if you want the convenience of bulk, and don't like paying cash, HURRY UP, we have a limited number of these bottles and they will sell FAST.
Our next stock won't be here for another 6 months!
