Artisan food producers from across Southland have joined forces in a bid to showcase the region's hidden flavours. Gathered Game Founder Chris Thorn reported that it is hard to gain traction as a small business in the artisan product market so formed a collective with others in order to link up and help each other grow. The collective also includes Munro Honey Co., Forage and Graze and Auld Farm Distillery, and are going to start off by doing food shows together to help build a customer base. The companies are excited to showcase what Southland has to offer in terms of its high quality ingredients.
