Hi There,I started a business 7 months ago in the water treatment sector and seem to just be hitting massive road block after road block with suppliers unwilling to let me hold accounts. I have been in the industry for a number of years, i know the businesses i want to work with but some just wont seem to give me the chance! An example is the Viqua brand of UV system. They have about four distributors in New Zealand already and continue to push me towards using them rather than a direct account. I know the product and I want to sell it but i do not want to buy from my competitors. Please help.Regards,Shaun.
Hey guys, my name is Ollie. Myself and a partner are starting up a Cold Brew Coffee company called Innerbloom. We are unique in the sense that we are organically brewed and flavoured to make for an awesome pre workout energy kick or just as an easy option to pick up and go. My question is relating to investors, is it worth getting either a business loan from a bank, or finding an investor, or just using what money you have to tick over the company as it gets going. Any info is greatly appreciated. Ollie
Hey guys, my name is Ollie. Myself and a partner are starting a Cold Brew Coffee company. We are unique in the sense that we use all organic ingredients and are slightly flavoured to make for an easy to drink beverage on the go, or before that big meeting. My question is in regards to investors, is it worth while getting a business loan from the bank, or finding an investor to pump some money into it, or what we are doing at the moment which is just paying the bills “as we go” kinda thing. Any info is greatly appreciated. Ollie
Hi, we are a small business wanting to get printed zip lock pouch bags done for our food products. I have been looking at different printing companies through China. While the prices are good I am nervous to choose a good repretable company. Could you offer any advice on either a good company to use or what to look out for/questions to ask etc. It’s a huge investment so just want to make sure we get it right. The price per bag is obviously extremely important. We hope this next step will help us move into more small supermarkets etc and have added barcodes to the products etc. Looking for small quantities of around 10,000 units per product 4-5 products. Food grade bags. Thanks so much for any help you could offer.
kia oraWe are in the process of launching a plant based food product that can be stored in either the chiller or freezer. Our aim is to distribute via supermarkets so wondering if anyone can provide advice on the best packaging size to accommodate the requirements of most supermarkets?

How would you go about making a rtd brand?
WE NEED HELP, PLEASE.We own and operate a small mobile food truck business.We are needing someone to look at our business and tell if we are doing the right things or not.We make everything fresh and wholesome. We attend as many of the local market and events as we can. Things have been going well so far this year, but we are very uncertain about next year and what it will bring. I did send a message a while ago and heard nothing back, which I was disappointed at. We have tried seeking help locally but they let us down. We both work very hard and have invested in the business fairly heavily. We need someone to talk to who understands what we do and can advise with an unbiased opinion. We look forward to hearing from you soon.Ian & Janet Sturt

We make native rau and real food fermented Tī (more commonly known as kombucha but have moved away from the kupu, because it’s culturally inappropriate as its Japanese still use today for a Inu completely opposite, clear misrepresentation of their Reo… so we are making the changes necessary to move away from the kupu… a few patai..Tuatahi, how to we now market our Inu with a changed named which no one knows or understands what we are.. any suggestions would be great.Tuarua, how do we market our product when we create in a Rongoaa space with Rongoaa rau and tikanga. We are interacting with 2 opposing Mauri, how do we seperate the 2 Mauri.Tuatoru….. lastly how do we price our Inu, we have won bronze medals for 2 Inu in the outstanding nz food producer awards, we also had all our Inu be finalists in the anz Artisan awards.. we are currently the only ones offering real foods with Native rau.. most use Tī ora tea bags or fruit tea bags to flavour, but we wanted to reduce our carbon footprint and impact on Papatuuaanuku so we only use, plants, ti rau, Putiputi and hua rakau to flavour so it can be taken and returned. We are currently stocked 6 stockists, we agreed on a shitty wholesale price just to get our product out there, we had only traded a full month before covid hit.. but our brand is slowly getting out and we would like to know how to price accordingly.
How can I produce my sauce on a larger scale so that I can distribute nationwide?I am council registered and sell food to the public via preorder for take away, once a week. Based on the feedback and reviews received, the sauce we pour over our food and supply on its own, is very sought after across NZ and in AU. We would like to bring our costs down and increase our sauce sales. Kia ora
