Watties’ ‘Food in a Minute’ has been running for 16 years, and it hasn’t changed much in that time. But it’s just launched a national, multi-channel campaign to celebrate its new look and modified focus.
There’s been a bit of green-fingered, grow-your-own food renaissance around the developed world in recent years, to the point where the approximately $600 million New Zealand gardening market is one of the few retail sectors currently moving in the right direction.

And now a billboard constructed from broken plates and glass from some of the hardest hit restaurants in Christchurch has been employed to try and get the punters to book their Christmas parties and support the city’s local restaurateurs.
