The Minister of Trade Hon Tim Groser was the keynote speaker among other New Zealand Government dignities and University of Waikato; each speaker highlighted the potential of this massive market.

“The Symposium provided us with a real insight into Dairy Products New Zealand-China Trade issues and growth opportunities. We see great potential in the US$12-16 billion dollar worth China market. There is a huge demand for quality dairy products in China as they can't produce enough. A Chinese dairy company started from scratch and within 5 years its capital value has now reached NZ$6.6 billion “, Craig said.

“We were delighted to be given the opportunity to address this Symposium and to be interviewed and couldn’t believe the interest in the media, the news has gone viral. It's not only covered on People.cn, also relayed on Xinhua News Agency's website one of the world’s biggest and dozens of other sites. Potential viewers could be in 100s millions in the country with 1.4 billion people “.

NuZtri’s business mission is to enhance the development and nutrition of infants, toddlers, children, expectant and breastfeeding mothers, adults and the elderly throughout New Zealand and eventually in China with New Zealand pasture-fed cow’s milk produced in the very best way following stringent quality control production processes.
