South Waikato News - - Out & About - FRANCES FER­GU­SON

Two of Toko­roa’s suc­cess sto­ries are set to take on the world.

Sil­ver Fern Maria Tu­taia vis­ited Blue Pa­cific Min­er­als re­cently to learn more about a key in­gre­di­ent in her beauty line.

Ze­o­lite, the key in­gre­di­ent to the nat­u­ral skin cleanser, made by New Zealand com­pany Zeosoft, is sourced from the Ze­o­lite quarry in Taupo.

The netballer was given a tour of the re­cently opened multi mil­lion dol­lar ex­pan­sion where the prod­uct is pro­cessed.

Tu­taia an en­dorser for the beauty prod­uct said she was look­ing for­ward to work­ing with the busi­ness as it de­vel­ops lo­cally and in­ter­na­tion­ally.

‘‘The nat­u­ral ze­o­lite and sil­ica min­er­als will change how women use skin cleansers,’’ she said.

Blue Pa­cific Min­er­als ze­o­lite is Biogro reg­is­tered.

The New Zealand Bi­o­log­i­cal Pro­duc­ers and Con­sumer So­ci­ety cer­ti­fies ev­ery sec­tor of the or­gan­ics in­dus­try in the coun­try and the Pa­cific.

South Waikato district mayor Neil Sin­clair and deputy mayor Jenny Shat­tock joined man­age­ment in wel­com­ing Tu­taia back home.

Sin­clair said they were thrilled to learn of this new re­la­tion­ship.

‘‘Blue Pa­cific Min­er­als is a great ex­am­ple of coun­cil’s com­mit­ment to its strat­egy to sup­port and pro­mote lo­cal busi­ness growth and new busi­ness devel­op­ment and Blue Pa­cific Min­eral’s growth.

‘‘Both in terms of new busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties and pro­vi­sion of jobs and the con­tin­ued diver­sity of eco­nomic op­por­tu­ni­ties for the South Waikato,’’ he said.

‘‘For us in Toko­roa, we can only be proud to call a talented beauty like Maria Tu­taia one of our own.’’

Sil­ver Fern Maria Tu­taia re­turns home to learn where a key in­gre­di­ent used in a beauty range she uses comes from.
