Nourished for Nil’s food rescue mission wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of our food sponsors. One of these being Havelock North icecreamery Melt & Co.
Melt & Co is located at Shop 14 Village Court, Te Mata Rd, Havelock North. They present ice cream in a totally different way by handcrafting it from liquid to ice cream right in front of you, providing an experience you won’t forget. The use of fresh, local Hawke’s Bay ingredients increases the delicious flavour of their ice cream.
The 5-star review on Facebook says it all, the public enjoys seeing the magic in action and after that, the awesome taste of the ice cream.
We sat down with Billie, the owner of the Melt & Co, to discuss their support for Nourished for Nil.
