Behind the Kounta

Messina x Kounta Tasting Sessions

Messina are so obsessed with the quality and flavour of their products, that they have made us their official ‘taste testers’.

Instagram post 18097220071127875 On Sunday our friends at @thesourcemosman put on a charity event to fund the efforts of @blazeaid - a volunteer-based organisation that works with families and individuals in rural Australia after natural disasters.  We were very proud to be involved, matching all donations dollar for dollar, to raise a grand total of $7,000.  It’s been incredible to see how our industry has responded to support people and communities affected by the recent bushfires... shout out to all the amazing hospo brands who are doing their bit!

Or do you just prefer the understated look and feel?  For whatever reason you want Dark Mode on your POS... now, you've got it.
