All interested aboard for a trade mission to Poland this September!
The food and beverage exporters mission will be lead by Frank Olsson, president of the NZ Europe Business Council and Swedish Honorary Consul in Auckland and co-ordinated by Boguslaw Nowak, the Honorary Consul of the Republic of Poland in Auckland. It is supported by the NZ Europe Business Council, New Zealand Trade & Enterprise, the New Zealand Embassy in Warsaw and the Polish Honorary Consul in Christchurch.
Currently, a small quantity of New Zealand lamb is sold to the market, which has a population of 38 million (plus 15 million living abroad) and a GDP growth rate of 3.1 percent.
The aim of the mission is to introduce companies interested in the market and “establish solid business ground in the hub to many lucrative Central and Eastern European markets (CEE),” says mission promoter Sebastian Krajewski.
They want to introduce to Poland at least six New Zealand export companies representing meat and also dairy, honey, fruit, vegetables, meat seafood, eco and diet food, coffee, tea, baked products, dry foods, wine, spirits, mineral water and soft drinks, confectionery, natural supplements and foods for domestic animals sectors.
The Polagra Food Fair, the biggest of its kind in the CEE, is included in the itinerary, along with business match-making and the first ever New Zealand-Poland Business Forum that will take place in Wroclaw.
“All companies will have the opportunity to present their business and products and learn from local experts about the CEE market specifics,” says Krajewski.
