Sue Bradford celebrates Buy Kiwi Made at Taupo

Government Spokesperson for Buy Kiwi Made, Sue Bradford, will be at the Taupo Home and Garden Show on Friday April 18 at the Buy New Zealand Made tent.

With this month being both the centenary of Buy Kiwi Made campaigns and the 20th birthday of the Buy New Zealand organisation Ms Bradford will be celebrating a century of campaigns to promote New Zealand made products and manufacturing success. The Buy Kiwi Made campaign is part of the cooperation agreement between the Green Party and the Government.

Ms Bradford will be sharing the Buy Kiwi Made Tent at the show with the purveyors of Letter Box World letterboxes, smelling the distinctively pleasant Harmony votive candles and admiring the Watea glass art. Many other manufacturers and retailers will be there too including Vickie's Originals who are giving away a $1600 prize of unique New Zealand made furniture and accessories.

"The Home and Garden Show is one of many public opportunities during Buy Kiwi Mad Month for New Zealand manufacturers and producers to showcase their products to a public that increasingly believes in supporting our local communities by buying Kiwi made."

"Buy Kiwi Made encourages and supports consumers to choose New Zealand made goods. Locally made goods are normally better for our economy and our workers, better for our communities and better for our environment because they require less resources."

Ms Bradford will be available for interviews and photographs at the Taupo Home and Garden Show, Great Lake Centre, Tongariro Street, between 10:00am and 11:15am on Friday morning, 18 April.
