Acclaimed Kiwi Food Chef Geneva Moana is the brains and heart behind Hot Kiwi Food, which she launched more than 5 years ago. She could see at the time that the food landscape in New Zealand was changing, and Maori food was not receiving the recognition she knew it deserved. As other cuisines grew in popularity, she was determined to keep traditional Maori food in the mainstream by making it more accessible to the public. Geneva loves her culture and takes pride in her heritage; she knew with Hot Kiwi Food she could create a space for cultural exchange and education. Over 5 years ago, Geneva started preparing authentic Hangi style New Zealand cuisine from a shopfront in Richmond, Christchurch and has been selling out her high-quality traditional delicacies ever since.
As Hot Kiwi Food continues to grow, it has recently entered the meals on wheels space, providing a community service to elderly residents confined by lockdowns and is well-positioned to expand throughout the country. Geneva is enthusiastic to onboard new franchisees who share her passion for traditional Kiwi food and are committed to preserving it for the next generation.
