Support Local Businesses With BuyKiwi

Online shopping platform for Kiwi-owned businesses, Buy Kiwi, has officially opened its doors.

Connecting New Zealanders to Kiwi businesses, the shopping platform is all about helping the economy thrive and making it easier to purchase local.

Their shopping platform allows all businesses with at least 80 percent Kiwi ownership to access a wide market, increasing their reach and continuing to focus on what they do best.

Some of the Kiwi businesses that have already joined the platform include the gin company, Broken Heart Spirits, the maternity brand, Go Mama, and cleaning products brand, Cleanz.

Buy Kiwi’s growing range of products range from cosmetics, books, toys, homewares, hardware and fishing gear, with more items being added everyday.

More than 7,000 shoppers have already registered.

“If we can get more Kiwis supporting Kiwi-owned businesses, we will be able to keep more money in the country, retain and create more jobs and, by extension, help local communities,” says Managing Director of Buy Kiwi, Jamie Farmer.

“If every Kiwi diverted just $50 per week spent with overseas companies to New Zealand-owned business, it would deliver $250 million per week back into the local economy.”
