Whether you've grown your business in New Zealand and are now looking for the next step, or you want to go international from day one, exporting your products and services has the potential for large rewards, but comes with equally large risks.

On this page we share our tips and resources on exporting, for North Canterbury businesses.

Where to Start

The key to setting up export channels successfully is planning, investment (of time and money) and research.

We recommend that when you are considering exporting, you make use of the expertise that is available through government departments and business coaches to ensure that exporting is a good move for you, that you are covering all of your bases, and that you minimise your risks.
