Freight Costs for Powder

North Island - Price On Application
South Island - Price On Application

Due to Government regulations, powder must be freighted by Tranz-Rail and the costs are now prohibitive. (These laws may change in the near future).

Consequently, at this point, these powder products will probably only be of interest to Wairarapa and Wellington people or those who can arrange personal pickup. 

Wairarapa - Pick up from our shop in Carterton
Wellington - Pick up points in Karori or Island Bay
