    Thanks Crem, and yes, that is pretty much what we have in mind at the moment.

    Hey Guys! Thanks heaps for that. And I have to apologise for not being online much lately. It is by far not an easy road in these times and I had been stuck at work in PNG for nearly 4 months before finally getting home. But yes, Mule Expedition Outfitters in Seattle have just bought a container of 400 boxes after an intro from Issac at Norweld. Can't thank Norweld enough to be honest. Isaac has made his mark in Aus and is making his mark in the US, and is just super happy to help out other NQ businesses, and Aussies, having a crack! We are about to joint ship a container with Southern Metal Spinners out of SA to send X134 boxes and Bedourie Ovens to the US market. Exciting times in amongst all the doom and gloom!

    In other news...besides China seemingly wanting to rule the world, if anyone loves their tucker and is looking for some proper Aussie Pepper, check out Aussie Pepper! I found this stuff by accident and no shit, if you have never had FRESH cracked pepper, let alone Aussie grown and harvested stuff, get this stuff into your tucker box. I could not believe the difference and you won't either. I should start a thread on it because it is that dam good. NQ grown and all! Back Aussie made!

    A three month stint ourselves now finished too out and across NSW.

    Cheers guys!

    Been playing with some new labeling too. Don't like the blue, and the orange isn't quite right, but you get the idea!

    Congratulations Ben Mate!
    Just received an email from a new distributor of yours, I think I signed up with them a few years back when purchasing little Engels direct from their Ferntree Gully - Vic store.

    Awesome! Yes, they are stocking them Nationwide now. We are stoked.

    Lots of fun stuff in the works now too. We hope to have a few more announcements shortly with a bit of luck.
