KO WAI MATOU | WHO ARE WE – MANAAKI MANAGEMENT LTD


KO WAI MATOU | WHO ARE WE


▪ “Manaaki” is derived from the word Manaakitanga, which encompasses hospitality, kindness, support, and service to look after others. Our business operates with these VALUES throughout; from employment of staff to our venue management contracts and food and beverage outlets.


▪ Our company VISION is to be an outstanding Māori & Pacific Business; which means to employ our own people where we can; to portray our cultures in a positive light; to uplift our own; to have those who come to work with us leave in a better place; whilst delivering a professional, caring, service environment, for all our customers.


▪ Our PURPOSE is to provide an inviting and professional venue, food & beverage service that leaves our customers feeling satisfied and content. We are here to “serve” in a warm friendly manner each and every person we come into contact with, whether that be customers or peers.


▪ Manaaki currently manages three separate venues, which with a total of 7 rooms/spaces for hire. We manage these venues on behalf of the owners of each premise and oversee all services such as; facility management, bookings, food and beverage services. Manaaki market’s these venues under the umbrella “Wellington Functions” with the intention of marketing more venues in the future.


▪ The “face” of our business first and foremost is Karaka Café. Our Café is named after the Karaka Grove on the Harbour side of the premise by the late Kaumatua Sam Jackson. It is said that Māori bought the karaka seed on waka as they travelled to settle in Aotearoa, enabling them to harvest the karaka (orange) fruit. The karaka grove brings with it, a connection to the history and story of our ancestors. The Wharewaka Building was a long-time dream of the Taranaki whānui, to have a foot print back on the Wellington waterfront.


▪ Karaka Café is owned and operated by the Retimanu whānau, who are of Māori and Pacific decent. The café was brought to life on the 6th February 2011 with a blessing of the whare as a whole. Our vision from day one, was to promote our culture in a positive light, through the senses of sight, sound and taste.
