What a fantastic day we had celebrating the opening of our new Blenheim Future Post factory recently!
With around 200 guests in attendance on a lovely sunny Marlborough afternoon, Friday 28th July, Future Post Chairman Simon Vaninni kicked things off with a warm welcome before our founder and CEO Jerome Wenzlick took to the stage and told his background story of how this true-blue Kiwi innovation originally came about, including the many trials and tribulations to get to where we are today.
Special thanks to the excellent guest speakers who shared their vision and support for this large-scale waste plastic recycling expansion into the South Island; Stuart Smith (MP for Kaikoura), Malcolm Everts (Packaging Forum), Ben McLauchlan (Director and Chairperson Marlborough Grape Growers Co-op) and Cr Gerald Hope (Marlborough District Council).
Also a shoutout to RB Catering, Enviro Hub Picton, Citizen Brewery, Boomtown Brewery, Cloudy Bay Wines, Babich Wines and the Marlborough Grape Growers Co-op for your delicious contributions.
Exciting times ahead as we expand single-use and waste plastic recycling capacity and 100% recycled post output now in the mainland.
Thank you to everyone who joined us and your ongoing support in making this happen - we're all doing our bit, together!
