Manaaki is a range of Māori infused condiments handmade at Omaka Marae in the Marlborough region.
The range is inspired by the ‘aunties of the old’ - “Queens of Manaakitanga”, who always kept the pataka filled with preserves, chutneys and sauces.
Manaaki was born out of the marae’s overarching vision, ‘Pā Orā, Pā Wānanga’, which is centered on whānau transformation through the creation of a thriving and sustainable marae. In just a few years, we’re already seeing this strategy bear fruit. This includes the newly opened bilingual unit Te Pā Wānanga for primary- aged tamariki. To see and hear the marae come alive with the voices of the next generation is a truly special thing.
We take a ‘seed to jar’ approach, with as much produce as possible grown in the marae marakai and handmade into a delicious range of condiments, including Kawakawa Jelly, Kamokamo Pickle, and Horopito and Lemon Sauce.https://www.tastemanaaki.com/
