Trade Mission Down Under – 2
As always, trade missions start off with impressive sightseeing activities in the region concerned – this time we enjoyed a pleasant boat cruise through the harbour of Auckland, New Zealand.
On Monday we were back to business with several presentations about New Zealand’s and the Maori economy, followed by a matchmaking session with our New Zealand partners.
Unfortunately, we had to miss the company visits on Tuesday. Though, in exchange we had a great time at the meeting with the leading supermarket brand Countdown arranged by ourselves. Apart from an extraordinary variation of fruits and vegetables on the shelves, Countdown is offering one particular fruit basket that is stealing the show at the moment. All 181 Countdown supermarkets across the country are providing a basket topped with free fruit for children. A wonderful, smart and generous initiative, which of course gets overwhelmingly positive feedback.
