NZTE Voices from the market - China
• NZ exporters will need to modify offerings if they wish to
gain better margin in the market and push high value
products. The directions that are worth considering are
smaller portion packaging and solution based product
development
• If you eat less meat, make it a special occasion every time
you do. Eat the lean and tasty meat (lamb) from animals
raised in the most natural way in a country free of GMO
and many diseases and with the most sophisticated food
safety and traceability systems you can find. In China, taste
of red meat is important and Chinese prefers the taste of
fat in beef
NZTE Voices from the market - EU
• Sustainability and product origin is increasingly important to the
consumer. Health is also an important reason.
• Animal health and wellbeing are rather reasons for sourcing regional or organic products. 60% of the consumers state that they are
willing to pay more for regional products, 29 % prefer organic meat.
However, these levels are not quite reflected in the real sales in the
grocery stores
• The animal welfare component is definitely something that would
work in favour for NZ products. The picture of free range lambs is
associated with animal well-being.
• Sustainability is trickier. Many of the consumers find it hard to
believe that products shipped halfway around the world could be
just as, or even more sustainable as regional products
It’s hard to make your product fit for every market

• The trend to reduced meat consumption presents
an opportunity for NZ meat exports to position
their product as follows: If you eat less meat,
make it a special occasion every time you do.
• Eat lean meat / tasty meat (lamb) from animals
raised in the most natural way in a country free of
GMO and many diseases and with the most
sophisticated food safety and traceability systems
you can find!
Are we losing the chance to dominate the category?
