Opportunities For Exporters To Find New NZ Distributors

Pacific Island exporters will have an opportunity to find new distributors in New Zealand through a trade mission in July.

These involve selected enterprises from some of the biggest Pacific Islands’ exporting countries like Fiji, Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea, Tonga and Samoa.

The trade mission is jointly co-ordinated by the Secretariat of the Pacific Community and the Pacific Islands Trade and Invest.

Products such as virgin coconut oil, fruit, vegetables, spices and coffee will be promoted across the board.

SPC chief of staff, Patricia Sachs-Cornish, said: “Entering into this partnership with PT&I was essential to complete the supply chain for quality Pacific products.

“SPC assists enterprises in developing market-ready products and PT&I will now be able to put them on shelves through the identification of buyers.”

Pacific Islands Trade and Invest New Zealand’s Trade Commissioner, Michael Greenslade, said he had high hopes for the enterprises and was looking forward to introducing them to some of Auckland’s high profile Pacific chefs.

“The chefs will show the enterprises how their products can be used in restaurant dishes and what is required to be successful in supplying the hospitality market,” he said.

SPC is finalising the selection of enterprises for the mission based on their level of existing exports and their capacity to supply further customers in New Zealand.

A list of confirmed exporters will be available by 30th April.

PT&I promotes Pacific Island products to international buyers and they will provide their resources in the Auckland office as their contribution to the mission.
