We have supplied restaurants in Kaikoura, Christchurch, Auckland and Wellington. One Kaikoura restaurant would like to put koura on the menu but wait for us to hold 50 kilos of market sized stock available in our pond.
We have had requests for large numbers of koura to export to Asia and from Chinese importers in Auckland.
We have sold koura to our farm tours, airbnb guests and at the Kaikoura Farmers Market.
Mary worked at developing a koura pate'. This was a value added product where one koura was now selling for $200/kg, however it had a three day shelf life. It could be made for restaurant order or market days.
One koura grower has arranged a once a year co-operative export of koura to Hong Kong for the Chinese New Year.
