Waikato Business Creates Laboratory That Fits In The Palm Of Your Hand

A small Waikato company is making it possible to do laboratory work, outside the laboratory. Sagitto, founded by George Hill, helps companies improve and monitor the quality of their products, by putting a laboratory in the palm of their hand.

Healthy Food That Doesn’t Need A Fridge To Stay Fresh

Six years ago when Nick Moore was taking part in the Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge he wanted to eat well to supplement his training, but he didn’t have much fridge space so he couldn’t prepare meals in advance. He thought someone would have invented a quick, easy, healthy meal for athletes that didn’t need a fridge, but found nothing. He did his research and found a way to make healthy food, including meat meals, that didn’t need to be stored in a fridge or freezer. But it wasn’t until 2015 when his idea actually saw the light of day. Plate Me is a food company that makes delicious, healthy, heat-and-eat meals that don’t need to be stored in a fridge. The meal is cooked following a recipe, as y
