Hi, I'm Marea Verry the main face of GoodBugs, and a self-styled health advocate. I have been interested in fermentation and nutrient dense food for the last 20 years.
After teaching a class about making pesto from all the wild and wonderful herbs and greens found in the garden, I experimented with fermenting pesto and it became a firm favourite because of it superior taste, shelf life and nutritional properties.
I saw potential in producing fermented pesto commercially and being the market leader. GoodBugs started out at the Hamilton Farmers Market and are now available online and in selected local specialty stores and cafes. GoodBugs are leading the way bringing new and innovative fermented products to market.
