Munch’s manufacturing team is their home-based work force – which is a unique production model that founder Anna Bordignon started over 6 years ago and now supports the 500 to 1 supply chain. 000 beeswax food wrappers per week. From the start of Munch, Anna has wanted to support women who would otherwise have a hard time finding meaningful work.
“We chose to manufacture in New Zealand because there are so many skilled people here in our country who want to work and who can make beautiful and useful products. Anna said.
Munch reinvented a workforce model that was common over 100 years ago, allowing people – especially parents – to work from home, during their own hours, with no accessibility issues. This concept of labor for manufacturing was widespread before the Industrial Revolution. Bordignon is proud that, through the Homework Force team, it has created a passionate collective of “makers”. They are Munch Moms who contribute to the sustainability of our world as they earn money and support their families.
Donna is one of the many women on the Munch Homework Force team, who joined her over 4 years ago. She brings high-level skills to the production of beeswax wrappers and wrappers, working from home or at Munch’s headquarters in Berhampore, Wellington.
“We make useful products without plastic, which means less plastic is used by families and in children’s lunch boxes. It’s so good to see something I made at the supermarket – even at my local countdown in Wainuiomata! And I’ve learned so much working at Munch, especially about waste and recycling. said Donna.
Supporting moms and parents is important to Anna, and the Munch brand is all about empowering families to change the world. She says that since its inception in 2014, it has been a journey to educate supermarket shoppers and consumers about great alternatives to plastic. Fast forward to 2021 and Munch has over 20 product lines in supermarkets and can now be found in around 200 Countdown stores as well as all New World, Fresh Choice, Raeward Fresh, Farro Fresh, Huckleberry, Commonsense and more stores. Again.
Being on supermarket shelves across the country means Munch is able to drive the social and sustainability impacts of their social business. They will bring more work to those in need in New Zealand by increasing their home work force and they are also leading product management with a new silicone reuse project in New Zealand. The social impacts of the Munch activity were recently recognized by the Akina Foundation with Munch now listed in FWD’s social purchasing directory.
