Silver Ferns and Lee Kum Kee: a recipe for success

Netball New Zealand (NNZ) and Lee Kum Kee are proud to announce a new partnership ahead of the first Test of the Taini Jamison Trophy.

Lee Kum Kee, supplier of authentic Asian sauces and cooking ingredients, joins a growing stable of companies committing their support to the sport and the Silver Ferns.

With 128 years of heritage, Lee Kum Kee has become a household name world-wide, as an essential condiment in Asian cooking. They offer 200 choices of sauces and condiments to over 100 countries and regions across the five continents.

They come on board at an exciting time for Netball in New Zealand with the Silver Ferns winning the Netball Quad Series for the first time.

NNZ chief executive Jennie Wyllie says they’re excited to welcome Lee Kum Kee to the team.

“Lee Kum Kee is a respected international brand and, like the Silver Ferns, are committed to promoting the benefits of healthy, nutritious eating,” Wyllie said.

“We’re excited by the partnership and look forward to working with the team at Lee Kum Kee on some exciting opportunities.”

Joanne Hall, Lee Kum Kee senior brand manager, says they’re looking forward to working with the Silver Ferns to inspire sporting families.

“We are extremely excited about the opportunity to partner with a high profile sporting organisation that is aligned to our values of quality and integrity,” Hall said.

“We are dedicated to helping Kiwi’s create quick and authentically tasty meals at home, and together with the Silver Ferns we are looking forward to inspiring sporting families nationwide.”

The Silver Ferns open their Taini Jamison Trophy campaign on Thursday 7 September at Te Rauparaha Arena, Porirua, against the England Roses.
