Fruitbowl is an online business community, promoting Hawke's Bay, championing local business and discussing business issues.
Hawke's Bay, on the east coast of New Zealand, is a fantastic place to live and raise children. Many people grow up here, travel and then return to finally balance lifestyle and career.
Those returning soon discover that there are quite a few others just like them, working in and out of the Bay - participating globally but with the fantastic lifestyle the Bay has to offer.
And there are plenty of great local businesses, doing smart things with clever people.
Using the the web we thought it would be useful to create a venue for Hawke's Bay businesses to share their stories and build a community to encourage business opportunities, friendships and attract other smart people back, or to, Hawke's Bay.
Hence the idea of Fruitbowl - fresh ideas from Hawke's Bay!
Anyone in the Bay, or with an affinity for the Bay, is welcome to join the conversation.
We live in a great place. By working together, sharing stories and experiences we can make it even better!
