The True Honey Co. wins at the Primary Industries Zealand Awards
A reliable, agile and sustainable supply chain has kept Kiwi exporters competitive on the world stage as they navigate global disruption, according to Kotahi, New Zealand’s largest containerized exporter.
“The last 12 months has shown us, more than ever, the importance of a sustainable and reliable supply chain, that has enabled our exporters to secure opportunities against other supply chains currently struggling,” said David Ross, Kotahi Chief Executive, speaking at the Primary Industries New Zealand Awards, in Christchurch last night.
“Our strong cargo pool, strategic carrier and port partners and our planning and optimisation capability, has given exporters on our platform the reliability others have not had in these difficult conditions,” said Mr Ross.
“Over the last three months, we have worked with our strategic partners to increase capacity on existing services and move additional capacity into underserved locations, which helps to unlock New Zealand’s congested export supply chain. We will keep working to provide our exporters with the capacity they need, despite disrupted conditions that we expect to continue through to quarter one 2022 at the earliest,” said Mr Ross.
Kotahi is the sponsor of the Producer Award, at the Primary Industries Zealand Awards, which recognises and celebrates a standout food producer in the New Zealand Primary sector.
