The products would be available for consumption in partnership with Big Basket, India’s leading online grocery store.As a part of this expansion strategy, product offerings of these NZ brands will become accessible across several new cities in the Indian market. The marketing campaign will highlight how New Zealand food producers and businesses grow and produce food that is “Made with Care”.

We are eager to strengthen our relationship with India and build a strong, sustainable platform on which both of our nations can connect. In addition to providing an opportunity for our local companies to expand in India, we hope to also build a long-term base for other New Zealand products to establish a footprint in India. We are excited at the chance to reach out to the Indian consumer and deliver the best products from New Zealand.”As New Zealand expanded its offerings for the Indian consumers, David Pine, New Zealand High Commissioner to India, said, “New Zealand and India both have shared a long-established relationship with each other. We have constantly worked towards improving our product offerings for the Indian audience and the ‘Made with Care’ campaign highlights New Zealand’s promise of sharing its culture and products with a wider audience in the future.”This announcement builds on a trade mission from New Zealand to India in February 2020, when New Zealand’s Foreign Affairs Minister Winston Peters and Trade and Export Growth Minister David Parker visited India to further strengthen political and business ties. The Ministers co-led a high-level business delegation to India to support increased people and economic engagement between the two countries.The New Zealand Government has always been keen to work with India on global and regional issues, and towards potential trade and economic opportunities.
