Three Huge Days at Arabian Natural & Organic Expo, 2021

Thursday, December 16th, 2021

The sandstorm is settling on a huge three days exhibiting at the Arabian Natural & Organic Expo, Dubai, where we’ve been showcasing New Zealand artisans and their products to buyers from around the Middle East, Europe, the UK and beyond. Our team hardly had a moment’s respite across the three days as OnlyFromNZ attracted a huge number of prospective clients keen to see the fresh and innovative New Zealand products on offer. We also attracted attention from local press and influencers, with several interviews given to local newspapers and TV. As always, we want to thank all our partners in New Zealand –  Mipuchi, Newflands, Te Wai, Veletta, 3Bee, Nil, Munch Cupboard, Radical Dog and Frabella – who entrusted us with their brands for Expo. We also want to thank Jo McEvoy and Sara Al Hussaini from NZTE’s Dubai office who not only came to meet the team and see what we were doing, but stepped in to help out when things were going completely crazy! Champions all.

Silicone Send Back

Thursday, January 14th, 2021

Munch Founder and CEO Anna Bordignan recently joined an NZ project group to raise awareness of product stewardship. Product stewardship is about businesses taking responsibility for the products they make, sell and buy, so their products don’t just end up in landfill. That means designing and making products to last, then putting systems in place to enable them to be reused and recycled when they’re worn out.

SBN is leading the Aotearoa [New Zealand] Product Stewardship Campaign with a number of key businesses and aims to raise awareness and increase the number of businesses involved in product stewardship.

A group was formed to focus on silicone products in particular and Munch is the first New Zealand collection point for a new pilot programme to repurpose silicone: Silicone Send Back.

Anna says Munch chooses to use silicone rather than plastic as a good alternative because of its functional properties, these include thermal stability, durability, non-toxicity and elasticity.

“It’s a great alternative to plastic. But the end-of-life of silicone products in New Zealand needs further consideration. Currently in New Zealand there are no silicone recycling options. Even in the US, the recycling options are limited and are still in early stages.

“The exciting news is that a pilot silicone processing facility is being investigated, as part of The Aotearoa Product Stewardship Campaign led by the Sustainable Business Network.

“To avoid silicone products going into landfills right now, we can start to collect it and sort it,” she says.
