Cook Island’s BTIB’s (Business Trade and Investment Board) Trade Fair is part of Cook Islands Constitution Celebrations, a time for local businesses to show and sell. An important event for the outer islands, in particular, who face challenges when it comes to getting their product to potential customers.

The story of Mauke Moments

Andrew and I began experimenting with local produce to make jams, jellies, chutneys and sauces using our own home made vinegars & sundried fruits. Over time we narrowed down to about 30 products. Very few are able to be made year round, as produce is seasonal, so variety is important. The name ‘Mauke Moments’ was Andrew’s clever idea. After mmmming and ahhing over a cracker with a tasty spread on it he said something like, I’m really enjoying this moment and declared… that’s what we should call this business. And so it is!
