Website Selling National Treasures!

In contrast to the sale of land into foreign ownership, http://www.newzealand.co.nz is proudly selling off other national treasures via the web with strong public support.

http://www.newzealand.co.nz’s recently launched "Kiwi IcoNZ" e-tail shop currently boasts over 220 uniquely New Zealand products, with even more being added daily.

Within 20 minutes of going live, the first order was packed and on it's way to Great Britain. Within 10 days other destinations included the USA, Korea, Denmark, The Netherlands, Australia and Ireland.

Homesick kiwi's can get their fix from a selection of "kiwi" favourites including Marmite, Snifters and Watties tomato sauce.

For locals in search of a uniquely New Zealand gift there's a range of homeware made from native New Zealand woods, art and craft, plus handmade paua, bone and greenstone jewellery.

There are classic Buzzy Bee products for the kids, and a selection of Native New Zealand soft toys including a Kiwi, Kakapo, Takahe and Pukeko.

More than a shop, http://www.newzealand.co.nz is also home to "KiwiCards", New Zealand's very own free electronic postcard service. To date the service has delivered some 19,000 individual postcards promoting New Zealand to recipients all over the world.

Their WebLinks directory offers free listings for New Zealand web sites, while their WebMail service lets you have yourname@newzealand.co.nz - a uniquely New Zealand email address you can check from anywhere in the world.

Best of all, this piece of e-realesate is 100% New Zealand owned and operated.
