Paleo Bread
Paleo Bread is our most exciting product yet in our journey to fuelling
humans with ideal nutrition. We are focusing not only on what we are
putting in our products but what we are leaving out. Our lives depend on
food, so were trying to make great foundations for healthy lives. As we
study the importance of gut bacteria and Omega-3 fatty acids we are seeing
so many opportunities to understand and support the way our bodies are
designed to operate.
Paleo (your grain free bread) was launched in July 2015, after a full year
of research and development we settled on a couple of delicious recipes.
The two flavours share Australian Almonds, free range eggs and tapioca
starch as key ingredients but still bear their own unique taste, texture
and nutritional benefits.
We also have the Auckland City Council to thank as well as Pub Charity, Infinity Foundation, Four Winds, Foundation North and NZCT.  These five foundations have been generous in their grants they have given to the event this year.  We couldn't do it without them! 

The grant from Pub Charity has been used to improve the cross country courses that Tich Massey has designed (CCI3* & 2*). Infinity Foundation's grant has been used on the 1* and 105 cross country, designed by Michael Guilfoyle. 

Four Winds' grant has been used to ensure we have the best medical personnel on site, and Foundation North's grant has been used for arena decoration, hiring the toilets and showers, as well as the sound system and portacoms. 

NZ Community Trust's grant has been used to hire the various caravans, Pink Bins and hiring the radio system which is so important on cross country day.
