Thanks very much Mike for this information. I managed to contact Chris Newy at Foodworks and he actually supplied the same info, with the additional
contact of
My inquiry to them about Supermarket Rennet suggests that "Renco for Junket" is a suitable strenght for cheese making.
I will be looking into "CHR Hansen Pty Ltd" at 91 Greewood Street Hamilton for the starters and will post my findings some time in the near future, just incase there may be someone else interested.
Renco NZ have also suggested an Australian company to me but at this stage I would prefer to deal locally if possible
Thanks once more

For any who may be interested.
