Fresh start for Takitimu Seafoods
It's been almost a month since Ngāti Kahungunu's fisheries business, Takitimu Seafoods, downsized to one fish 'n' chip takeaway shop, combined with its fresh fish and third-party retail outlet, and a strong wholesale and online wing for valued customers to maintain purchasing high-quality fish delivered straight to their door.
On May 30, around 25 staff and 10 iwi representatives met at Takitimu Seafoods in Napier to join in a refreshing ceremony to welcome everyone in the team to a new start for the company.
The morning commenced with Kaumātua Haami Hilton and Samoan elder Asovale Tuimaseve opening the day with a karakia shared in both the Māori and Samoan language to ensure that all staff could feel the goodwill and noble feelings among those present.
