What we do...

We make delicious, handmade momos with fresh and nourishing ingredients. Our momos are made after our very own original recipe. Warming and full of flavours, these are perfect for sharing with your loved ones on a chilly winter afternoon or those late summer evenings.

Why we do what we do...

Because of its origin Momo Said is different to other food companies. Momo Said's profits go back into the refugee and migrant community. This is done through employment opportunities and and upskilling. Momo Said aims to enable people that were forced to leave their home countries and who therefore became refugees, often suffering years of hardship while living in refugee camps all over the world.

Momo Said wants to support refugees to help them achieve their goals and contribute to their new home New Zealand.

Hence, when you purchase Momo Said momos, you are not simply supporting a local business but also a community.

It all started when...

In 2015, a Nepalese mum and migrant saw a need within Bhutanese and Nepalese communities in New Zealand for employment and training opportunities.

Having listened to his mother's concerns regarding her people, and the need of support saw within the refugee and migrant communities, Shreejan Pandey listened his mum's ideas and did as she said.  In discussions with friends, community members, and mentors, he began to gather together investors, experienced momo makers, and a few keen volunteers and Momo Said was born - just as his mum had said.

Now, a few years later, Momo Said is on its best way to establish itself as a trusted manufacturer and supplier of high-quality, delicious and nutritious momos throughout Christchurch with dreams of expanding throughout New Zealand.

Become part of our story...

At Momo Said we want to use the "power of food" for the greater good.
Food brings people together and by sharing a momo you become part of this dream of ours, to enable and support others and to people together in our communities.  

So share a momo (and our story) with your loved ones!
