NZW has grown out of ‘Kiwi day’. Kiwi, refers both to a native bird of New Zealand, and also is a nickname for the New Zealanders themselves. The two-week Festival, which has its humble beginning eight years ago in a hotel in Shanghai, has been developing rapidly every year. With more new venues and features, it has become an increasingly important activity for New Zealand caterers.

The theme activities officially kicked off on November 1st, bringing together 60 New Zealand brands, as well as dozens of retailers, coffee shops, restaurants and hotels. During the 17-day run, New Zealand will provide special culinary goods to the residents of five major cities across China.

China is New Zealand's largest export partner, with a total exports to China totalling 13.9 billion New Zealand dollars last year, of which food and beverage accounted for more than 60% and New Zealand Week will see the launch of wonderful new New Zealand products on the Chinese market. The event is presented by New Zealand and its 11 major channel partners.
