Morning Kat – we have heard about the pressure on these supply chains, it is super tough. Shortest routes to finding answers to this would be either talking directly to other importers who get the factories to make their products (ask for their contacts) or identifying the local ‘brokers’ here in NZ who will source for you from the factories. Often people have to do the latter to start with, and then over time you may replace the broker when you want and need a direct relationship with the factories if volume grows.
I would try to reach out to other owners – and explain your situation and see what they can do to help you. Andy
