Tim Lambourne tracks the journey of Maori exporting and celebrates the unsung heroes of the primary sector. From tennis balls at the US Open to venison at the Burj Kalifa, Maori are supplying some of the most sophisticated international markets.
Tim Lambourne travels across America; tracking tennis balls to the US Open, wine and oysters served in the top bars and restaurants across America and socks being worn by the US Ski team.
Tim Lambourne travels across Asia; following milk to Vietnam, paua cuisine to five star restaurants, and discovering manuka honey served in cocktails in the tallest bar in the world.
We showcase Maori products and companies exporting to the UK and Europe, such as possum merino worn by the royal family and leather boots purchased by Tom Cruise.
We head to the Middle East where our venison is being served to the rich and famous in the tallest building in the world (Burj Khalifa in Dubai).
