"We are excited about the acquisition of Logo Hunter as it signifies a major milestone in our ongoing commitment to safeguarding the Buy NZ Made brand."

Logo Hunter will enable Buy NZ Made to efficiently track and identify instances of trademark infringement across online marketplaces, social media platforms, and other digital channels.
