As you may be aware, the Prime Minister for New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern, announced NZ would move to alert “Level 4 – Eliminate” to contain the spread of COVID-19. As of 11:59pm Wednesday night (25 March), people have been instructed to stay home and work from home, for at least the next four weeks.  Food and logistics they have been deemed ‘essential services’ and operate under an exemption from this “lock down” our suppliers are all continuing to supply and all logistics are fully functional.

Our first priority at this time is the health and well-being of our employees and their families. As per our Government’s directive, we have sent our people home to prepare for self-isolation, working from home and looking after loved ones, old and young.

However, to confirm Fresha Export is fully operational and all elements of our business are continuing.  The office is working on a remote basis for the safety of all our own team.

Our Produce Facility is fully operational, we are following all health and safety requirements, and working under strict protocol.

Most importantly, stay safe and we wish you and your families all the best during this time.


Recognising that exporting from NZ is unique, the diversity and logistical challenges are unlike many other countries.  Having a partner who can be relied on to support your business is critical to markets where in many cases shipping frequencies are measured in weeks not days.
