Made from New Zealand opens London office

mfnz_logoThose entrepreneurial chaps from Made from New Zealand have now made an office space available in London for NZ exporters. It’s an excellent idea for Kiwi companies wanting to make headway into the UK and European markets and need an office HQ on a short-term basis.

Made from NZ has come far from digging a giant fern on Santa Monica beach on Waitangi Day in 2007. There are now more than 15,000 business and 6000 individuals with profiles on the site, supported by main sponsor Telecom. As its global NZ community grows, the rest of the world becomes easier to reach, and that’s a beautiful thang.

However, to relate the chocolate to the charity, Whittaker's has built the campaign around baby gender reveal parties, causing a backlash from the public who argue gender norms have expanded beyond blue for boys and pink for girls.
