Who is Rhayne?
The Rhayne story is a true pioneering journey, with passionate foodie Dean Fountain growing NZ native horopito at the base of Mt Ruapehu to spice up Kiwi cuisine. Rhayne, named after Dean's daughter, produces and hand packs three herb seasonings: Wild Horopito, Porcini Mushroom, and Makrut Lime Leaf.
