Home Gardeners Supply Local Products Through Barter System
A shop in Auckland has implemented a system where residents can donate produce in exchange for gelato.
Giapo’s Gelato shop in Auckland has launched a barter-based program this week where community-based and home gardeners can exchange their local produce for free gelato. Through a certification processes, the fruits and vegetables supplied by the community are tested for compliance to safety concerns and Giapo’s strict organic policies, before acting as a supply source for the shop’s varied flavor combinations. The community-grown fruits and vegetables are featured in creations like Giapo’s Organic Banana Sorbet and other imaginative recipes.
