Zany Zeus for sale

Written by  Milking It

Three weeks after winning the top prize in the NZ Ice Cream Manufacturers Association annual awards, Wellington gourmet dairy producer Zany Zeus is in the hands of receivers.

The company got into financial strife as it set up a Seaview factory and had no option but to call in receivers.

Already well-known for its other artisan dairy products, Zany Zeus not only won the Premium Ice Cream category but also scooped the Supreme Award for boutique manufacturers for the first time with its Ghana Chocolate ice cream. The judges commented on the ice cream’s dark, rich chocolate flavour, which leaves a clean mouthfeel, calling it absolute indulgence.

Zany Zeus’s collapse is unlikely to leave a sour taste in the mouths of Welly ice cream lovers. The company is still operating and the receivers hope to sell it soon.
