Support Your Local With Help from Goodman Fielder

To show support to all the incredible hospitality businesses around New Zealand that have been hard hit this year, Goodman Fielder Foodservice have gifted $25,000 worth of vouchers to their friends at SOS business

For every purchase of a gift voucher of $15 or more, Goodman Fielder will top it up with another crisp $5.

What is SOS?

SOS is a not-for-profit initiative that helps customers pay it forward to cafes, restaurants, and other local businesses by buying gift vouchers to redeem when they’re ready.

SOS Cafe was set up by experienced senior executive, David Downs, merchant success manager at Shopify Plus, Joyce Quah, and support frontend developer at Shopify Plus, Naadei Atafu, to help local businesses.

“Like everyone, we felt shocked and a bit helpless when it was announced that New Zealand would go into Level 4 lockdown, and thought about the hundreds of cafés and small businesses who would suffer. Our local businesses add so much colour and culture to our suburbs, it's now our turn to give back,” explained the co-founders.

“We whipped up this website that will allow cafés who don’t have the ability to take vouchers a way to do that, and to link to those that can. Many customers are loyal to their local coffee shop or restaurant/bar, and want to help. Now they can – if they used to buy a coffee and a muffin every day, they can now buy a voucher every day instead and give these café’s a fighting chance.”
