Business South – Dec / Jan 2022

In the latest edition of Business South, we take a look at the inspiring story behind Auld Farm Distillery. Southland farmers Rob and Toni Auld’s “light bulb moment” 15 years ago has become an all-consuming passion. It is one of the few distilleries in the world that grows its own grain, giving rise to the seed-to-sip concept of a primary producer that also produces its own end product. Canterbury hemp company, The Brothers Green, is set to break into international markets. It has just shipped its first order of bulk volume product to Vietnam and Korea and says the Southeast Asian market has been extremely interested in its way of processing hemp. A strong focus on community has always been at the beating heart of energy company Marlborough LinesWith climate change a fact of life, MLL has recently established Energy Marlborough a subsidiary focused on developing renewable energy in the region, primarily solar. And the efforts of Presbyterian Support South Canterbury in helping its community have again been recognised at the South Canterbury Business Excellence Awards 2021, with the organisation sharing the Community Organisation Award with New Zealand Raptor Trust at the, and taking home the Supporting Local Award.
