early 1985
In the 1985, Donald and Hilary's children began their involvement in the business.
Their daughter, Amanda, created the hugely successful Avoca fashion label as well as designing beautiful ranges of ceramics, candles, soaps and more.
Simon, their eldest son, meanwhile, focused on food. Under his care, the food business in Avoca was transformed from a small selection of jams and chutneys in a corner of one of the stores, into some of the country’s best-loved and most garlanded Cafes and Food Markets. He also developed an Avoca food label with an abundance of delicious products and a focus on fresh, quality ingredients.
Ivan, their youngest son, took over the operations of the weaving mill, and Vanessa, their youngest daughter, joined a few years later.
