The Girl Behind Mad Millie's Cheesemaking Kits
For this New Zealand company, home cheesemaking turned out to be jackpot country. The New Zealand Herald has the story on Saskia Thornton, who was given then task of creating cheeesemaking kits for Mad Millie. After a long road of cheesemaking education, she turned what she'd learned into a booming business:
"Because I had no idea about cheese-making when I was developing all the kits I came from quite a good standpoint because I was doing as most people would be doing it who used the kits as a beginner."
The initial launch of 200 kits sold out so fast that imake was left scrambling to reorder the components.
The kits are assembled in New Zealand with the various items coming from around the world: plasticware and thermometers from China, moulds from Italy, cultures from Europe and rennet from New Zealand.
