Hi, I'm Michael.
You probably have no idea who I am, but you may recognise the red monster and cookie I created over 30 years ago when I founded one of New Zealand's best loved brands, Cookie Time.
It's been one heck of a ride since the days where I'd drive around Christchurch in my little van to distribute cookies to glass jars on dairy counters! Since then, I've created One Square Meal which has become New Zealand's favourite fully balanced meal in a bar, and more recently, I've launched Nutrient Rescue: a company which helps people get more micronutrients from plants.
But my focus now is much bigger than just building businesses. I want to build a better New Zealand and I’d love and appreciate your help.
