Hello, and thank you for visiting Eatlocal.nz.
Eatlocal have been delivering boxes of fantastic, premium quality, locally-grown fruit and veges to healthy homes (and offices) across the South Island of New Zealand for almost three years.
Based in Christchurch, Joanne Webb (Owner/Operator and wearer of many hats in the business!) is passionate about bringing you the magic of the best, freshest quality produce available right to your door, with unrivalled customer service to match. Inspired by the amazing growers and makers here in New Zealand, she loves seeking out new products for her customers, and unleashing her creative side on the website.
You can be assured that every Eatlocal box of goodness is packed with care and attention.
“I take great pride in selecting only the best produce, and love that my customers trust me to be their eyes when I pack their order. The thought of them opening the box and going "oh wow, this looks amazing" is what gets me out of bed in the morning!”
Not a naturally sporty person, a few years ago, she took up running, purely because someone told her she would “never be able to run a marathon”, The challenge was duly accepted and she has completed the 42.2km distance fifteen times. She therefore understands the importance of a balanced, varied diet filled with fresh, good quality food to nourish and fuel the body in order to get the best out of it whilst training.
She loves being creative in the kitchen and would call herself a "flexitarian" – the lure of cheese and a good burger is hard to curb! As every chef, cook or food-lover knows, the quality of the ingredients is what makes the dish.
Joanne enjoys spending time with her partner, Chris, a willing recipient of all her cooking endeavours. In her spare time she can often be found walking in Christchurch's beautiful Hagley Park with Zac, their mini-Schnauzer, the most photogenic member of the team!
