Ngā Kaupapa o Hua Parakore is a hugely significant aspect of Hapi Ora both in inception and daily management practices, development work on this kaupapa being an important aspect of Gretta's professional life prior to the establishment of Hapī.
Further content for this section to be developed but in the meantime here are excerpts and links for the profiling of Hapi by Dr's Jessica Hutchings and Jo Smith in the research project "Storytelling Kaitiakiatanga: A Kaupapa Māori Land and Water Food Story: Hapi Clean Kai Co-op".
Hapi Ora | Clean Kai
Health & Wellbeing Specialists
He kai he rongoā, he rongoā he kai. Hapi is a way of living that celebrates diversity in eating styles and we believe everything you eat should taste and feel delicious. We are a wāhine (women) driven business that works hard to support our whānau, our community and our whenua.
We grow our own fresh vegetables in a certified organic market garden on the edge of Napier.
We are 100% committed to organics and promoting Kai Ātua, healing kai free-from contamination.
Gretta Carney has dedicated over 20 years to the organic sector and is passionate about healthy kai.
We opened our doors in 2015 with a vision to provide healthy kai for our community and haven't looked back since!
We buy in bulk, we compost our waste and we make all our own drinks and reuse the glassware!
We sell fresh vegetables, vegan cheeses, paleo-bread & ferments at our local farmers market every Sunday.
Te Matatini, F.A.W.C.!, festivals, concerts, cocktail parties, art openings, weddings & wānanga, we LOVE it all.
