Welcome to another edition of our monthly newsletter.
Happy New Year!
We have come back from a great holiday in Sweden, celebrating a white Christmas with Family and friends. It was fantastic. We managed to ice skate, cross country ski and in the last days we even caught a glimpse of the Northern lights - Amazing.
Coming back to this great NZ summer has been very hectic. Apologies for not sending out a newsletter in January. We came back to very empty shelves and we have been busy getting orders to our suppliers prepared. A small shipment arrived last week, so VP Herring and Crispbread is back in stock. An order from Scandinavia is on it's way with Kalles Kaviar, Abba Herring and lots of other Goodies
In this newsletter we have:
- Welcome to Oliver and Marie
- Valentines Day
- Short Date Sales

Welcome Oliver and Marie
While away on holiday I accepted a new job offer. During these first busy months of settling into the new role, our children Oliver and Marie will take over the shipments of parcels from SweNZ Taste. Hopefully you will not notice any difference. They normally come and help at the fairs so many of you have already met them.
YYY Valentines Day YYY
Saint Valentine's Day, also known as Valentine's Day is observed on February 14 each year. It is celebrated in many countries around the world, although it remains a working day in most of them.
St. Valentine's Day began as a liturgical celebration of one or more early Christian saints Valentinus.
The day was first associated with romantic love in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. In 18th-century England, it evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines").
In Sweden it is called Alla hjärtans dag ("All Hearts' Day") and was launched in the 1960s.
In Finland Valentine's Day is called Ystävänpäivä which translates into "Friend's Day". As the name indicates, this day is more about remembering all your friends, not only your loved ones.
In Denmark and Norway it is known as Valentinsdag, and same as here in NZ some people take time to eat a romantic dinner with their partner, to send a card to a secret love or give a red rose to their loved one
