Porirua’s Angel Delivery makes sure the special people in your life get a hearty, gourmet meal, right when they need it. It was needed a lot last year.
“We delivered more than 40,000 meals across New Zealand,” says general manager and co-owner Grace Kreft (pictured right with co-owner Rebecca Cass). “We're honoured to have connected so many families, friends, teams, and colleagues during life's ups and downs."
Since starting in 2008, Angel Delivery is now NZ’s leading fresh-food, gift service.
With a 72 percent lift in sales in the last year, it shows there is no slow-down in people sharing kindness, in a most delicious way.
