New director appointment
In conjunction with NZTE QCONZ was part of the New Zealand stand at the 2017 China Dairy Expo in Nanjing. It was a fantastic opportunity to meet with the people and get a really good understanding of the market and opportunities in China for QCONZ.
Justin and Angela travelled to China and showcased the Farmscope and Virtual Coach systems to a number of very technically savvy Chinese farmers and processors.
The team at NZTE worked really hard to help generate business contacts for QCONZ and introduced us to many individuals and businesses who may benefit from our products – many of these introductions are developing further.
Being “on the ground” in China gave us the opportunity to fully evaluate the suitability of our products to suit the Chinese market, and the feedback during the Expo was very positive.
Virtual Coach eLearning was particularly well received and the development we made to incorporate Mandarin characters was definitely worthwhile.
QCONZ has been successful in our bid to be an approved audit agency for the NAIT accreditation programme assessment which launched this week.
Ko Tatou – This is us – Biosecurity 2025 Biosecurity is important to our business, our sector, farmers, and farming communities and to the overall economy of New Zealand. A proactive approach to biosecurity is good business risk management. It is also part of caring for the communities we live and work in.
On 31st January Josh Wheeler (QCONZ) and Nick Dowson (BOP Dairy Farmer) began their journey to cycle New Zealand from Cape Reinga to Bluff! This is no mean feat!
