LEADING INDUSTRY NEWS
PLUS! FROZEN FOODS n RICE & PASTA n GLOBAL TRENDS n
ur recent reader survey revealed some interesting insights and encouraging
feedback. Most of you rated the quality of our publication very highly, but
some readers were keen to see more global trends and international news.
We really value your opinion, so in this issue our team has sourced
some exciting new trends from around the world for you. We bring you
the highlights from the Fancy Food Show, North America’s largest specialty
food and beverage event, and also take you to Expo Milano 2015 in Italy. This year’s Expo
theme is ‘Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life’, with a Future Food District Pavilion designed
like a futuristic supermarket and made interactive with modern technology. The Expo is on
now until the end of October and you will find all the details on pg 46-48 .
Some commodity prices, particularly dairy prices, have continued to fall globally. However,
NZ milk prices remain relatively high - an issue that has been raised by consumers and various
media recently. Suppliers and supermarkets have been blamed for the relatively high price of
milk and dairy products here, but the reality is that many external factors, such as taxes and
droughts can also come into play. Turn to page 14-15 to see how our milk prices compare with
prices in the rest of the world.
With beef and lamb for example, pursuing overseas markets can lead to under-supply at
home and this can affect local meat prices. New Zealand’s beef and lamb comes from grass-fed
livestock (as opposed to grain fed in other parts of the world) and this means suppliers can
charge higher prices overseas because our meat is considered to be of premium quality.
New Zealand’s wine has also proven to be a force on the global stage, winning over judges
and consumers alike. We take a close look at local and global wine production trends, organic
wines and Chardonnays, in our NZ Liquor News section, which starts on pg 53.
More than half of New Zealand respondents in a recent Nielsen survey said they like it when
manufacturers offer new products, and over a third said they’ve purchased a new product
during their last grocery shopping trip. Turn to pages 12-13 for more on this insightful research
- and please remember to share your new products with us. Email me your news, send in your
