Description:

Want to take a different approach to success in China?

Accessing the potential of the mainland Chinese market has always been a challenge for Kiwi businesses, but now is the time with consumers in China increasingly seeking healthier lifestyle and premium wellness product. Kiwiso enables New Zealand exporters to get their locally made products into the Chinese market with its own direct-to-consumer sales channels.

Join us and hear from Mike Arand, Commercial Lead for Kiwiso about how your business can benefit from this opportunity.
