Export Initiative

FGC’s Export Initiative Working Group drives knowledge and creates opportunities for members already exporting or those looking to export.

The workgroup of industry specialists meets six times a year. It provides industry updates and resources for members via the FGC newsletter and website, and organises speakers to address members via regular forums, and networking events.

The group has five aims:

  1. Accelerate the growth of food and beverage exports from New Zealand, particular focus initially in Asia.
  2. Provide a resource base for members wishing to export or expand their business.
  1. Provide networking and speaker opportunities and forums.
  2. Raise the profile, importance, quality of resource and funding for food manufacturers within government organisations.
  3. Use offshore connections to lobby for improvements to regulatory constraints in various countries.
