Buy NZ-Made For Christmas!

New Zealanders are being urged to buy NZ-made when they do their Christmas shopping this year.

Buy NZ Made Executive Chairman Dalton Kelly says it's a time when people spend more than usual - and remembering to buy NZ-made could make a big difference to local businesses.

"Buying NZ-made helps grow Kiwi jobs and would make the best Christmas present for our economy," Mr Kelly said.

He said New Zealand businesses had donated products worth thousands of dollars to this year's Great NZ Christmas Stocking promotion.

Customers buying NZ-made products can send Buy NZ Made Kiwi logos in to the draw to win the big prize.

"Entry forms are available at retailers that stock NZ-made products - buy Kiwi-made this Christmas and be in to win!"
