Waikato Food Inc Named NZ Food Hero Finalists

With over 340 outstanding nominations for New Zealand’s food and beverage heroes, all of whom have done amazing things for Kiwis during the COVID-19 response, the line-up of Finalists is exceptional and Waikato Food Inc are proud to be one of these.

From the moment Covid  19 started to make an impact on our nation and our industry the WFI team jumped into action looking for ways we could help.  Within 24hours we brought together over 100 business owners to hear from industry leaders what was happening as well as to brainstorm how together we could be stronger.  During lockdown the team fielded 100s of calls from members and non members needing advice as well as raising issues with media so this content was covered.  When we knew level three was imminent we jumped into action and quickly had a directory of those doing deliveries and takeaways available.
