I’ve been looking for something like this for years, it just wasn’t cheap enough for me to get to the stage where I could afford it,” he explained.”
So, when I came to the decision to open up a retail business, I thought, well, let’s try it.”‘
I feel pretty good’Mr Mathews said he was excited about the product, adding that he was glad that it was being offered to the public.”
It feels pretty good.
It’s just a lot of effort to develop it,” Mr Mathews told ABC Radio Hobart.”
The product has been so well received and is just such a lovely product.
“Mr Mathew said he would also like to see other companies use the product commercially, like the Australian Honey Industry Association.”
They’ve all got different approaches and we’d love to see others try to develop something like that,” he told ABC Hobart’s Chris Davies.”
But it’s not going to happen overnight.
