Hi, Ive found that post lockdown business started with a boom but has slowed down a tad so I’m not sure how much stock I should order in, in the next few months? Cheers
Hi There. My name is Phoebe Chow and I am one of the Co-CEO’s of That’s a Wrap. We are creating 100% environmentally and economically sustainable vegan food wraps. We are writing to enquire about potential manufacturers or people that could help with manufacturers to make our product, or if there is anyone that you guys know that could help with our packaging?Thank you!
Hi Team, We sell water tanks …. Innovative and real problem solving ones! Been growing for 3 years focusing on Specifiers and building companies. With potential upheaval in property sector and therefore lower number of builds in medium term (planning timeframes have changed so I mean 6 -12 mnths), we need to create new channels. I’m thinking plumbing merchants & hope the margin reduction will be offset by volume, with benefit of more secure payment. But I’d really appreciate please, a steer as to how to put a plan together for something like this. Thank you!
Kia Ora,I am a small baby, kids and clothing line https://nineteesbaby.com At the moment i am sourcing my bespoke design product out of America but due to Covid-19 hitting America i am stuck with huge fulfilment times and also lack of product stock with logistical breakdowns and delays. I am wanting to setup a second production line preferably in Asia so that i could try and get my product created out of there as their lockdown eases. My question is that i would love some advice on where to look for Asian Manufacturers and how to engage with one.Nga mihi nui,Kat

We have been back since Level 3, but we have no work. How do we generate work when there is none out there yet? Where is our time and energy best spent?
Wondering if you know of anyone who might have a commercial kitchen within 10km
of CBD that’s not in use at the moment, that can perhaps let The Cookie Project
drop in to do some cookie premix for 5 hours a week? The Cookie Project is a certified social enterprise that employs
Kiwis with disabilities to make delicious cookies. The team is currently
transitioning to find a new permanent commercial kitchen. In the meantime,
they’re looking for a temporary commercial kitchen to use for 3-5 hours a week
to pack their cookie premix which is selling very well at the moment as an
interim product solution during lockdown. They’ve delivered over 300 sets of the premix
to help generate urgent cashflow to pay the bills. They also believe in kindness and that’s the reason why they’ve also donated 400 bags of
cookies to charities just before lockdown, and dispatched over 200 bags of cookie premix during lockdown to those in need.
Every set of cookie premix sold actually generates two kindness: Guarantees future employment hours for
their disabled bakers, and donates one bag of cookies to Kiwi kids with autism
(Children’s Autism Foundation). They have all the credentials, awards and recognition as a social
enterprise, including being named the recipient of 2019 Attitude ACC Employer Award. They are an essential
business with all the food control plan, health and safety protocols in line
Your support will mean the world to everyone at The Cookie Project
to help them keep the business running even during lockdown. If you can assist
in connecting them with someone who can donate their commercial kitchen for 5
hours a week within 10km of CBD, please email co-founder Eric Chuah at
email@example.com or text Eric at 0279737181.
Kia kaha and be kind to each other,Eric Chuah

If we have a showroom and let only one person in and we have floor to ceiling acrylic panels between us and customer ie: sealed bubble so they can’t pass jerms can we open our showroom. We are fully online as well so it would be less than 5 customers per day that have to come into our showroom for custom work we would talk to them through the acrylic walls zero contact with them is this ok ?
Looking urgently for a secure packing capability for COVID19 face masks we are making in Auckland
