New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (NZTE), the government agency responsible for helping New Zealand businesses to grow internationally, is bringing Taste New Zealand Week to Al Jazira Supermarket Zinj branch from 15-21 November.
As part of the ‘Made with Care’ campaign, Taste New Zealand Week will showcase the produce of over 16 New Zealand food and beverage brands spanning dairy, meat, seafood and health and wellness categories.
The brands featured during the week are Rockit, Dairyworks, Fogdog, Westgold, Egmont Honey, Red Shoots, Libertine Blends, The Apple Press, Sanford, Silver Fern Farms, Open Country Dairy, Comvita, NZ Health Naturally, Phoenix, Charlie, Kiwi Garden and Mr Apple.
The campaign highlights how New Zealand’s producers deliver delicious, world-class food and drink, naturally bursting with incredible flavour. The event also highlights the special connection that New Zealand producers have to the land and sea.
Visitors will be able to sample the brands on offer throughout the week-long event. New Zealand products are available for purchase at Al Jazira stores in Adliya, Jasrah, Zinj, Budaiya, Juffair, Riffa, Hamala, Hoora, Janabiyah, Sehla, Karranah, Manama and Qudaibiya.
Ahmad Zakkout, the Trade Commissioner for Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait and Oman at New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, said: “Bahrain is an exciting market for New Zealand food and beverage companies and is well recognised by consumers as premium food and beverage producer.”
“Our event with Al Jazira last year showed that there is a demand for tasty, healthy and nutritious food and beverage especially as a result of the increased interest in personal and family health; wellness since Covid-19 began.”
“We see this event as a great opportunity to showcase how our Maori ethos of “katitakitanga” - care for people, place, and the planet translates into fantastic food and beverages that consumers can trust.” New Zealand exports more than half the food it produces, delivering premium-quality food and beverage products to millions of people worldwide.
