A question today is: How do you see New Zealand developing new export markets in the health industry?
I think a good start is looking at website: ThomasNet.Com in the USA. It lists ‘small’ businesses who’ve created ways to boost the health and beauty sector. Their ideas are very entrepreneurial and involve scientific thinking.
This topic is an important one in the world, as there are many (due to political decisions) who actually lack regular nutrition in their diets. So, this idea is along those lines in closing the divide of nutrition inequality developing in some countries in such times, as well as thinking entrepreneurial too. Ideas that grow the economy, while doing more good in the world than harm is kinda what the funky, healthy vibe is all about in New Zealand’s future.
Take a look at the website and… if you’re health inclinedwitha brain… you’ll be able to work it out, in a New Zealand context. Of interest too, is how much money these families make by just getting on with it and focussing on wealth creation with investors initial backing. When I first posted this website while living in California three years ago, I did so with the view that entrepreneurial Kiwis (particularly Iwi Maori Kiwis) who read Horiwoodblog, might find value in venturing into the health industry. In those days of 2009, I was selling corporate video concepts and packages to the health sector. ThomasNet.Com was of significance because back then, it used to list the companies annual takings. Thus you knew who to call and pitch to and sell to. Most vitamin companies annual income was US$20 million (minimum). Most of these companies were owned by one family. They were just entreprenerial family-minded biz people. As whanau, these people (in my view) were totally rocking! The website has since made the company earnings private to viewers – but wow! Just know that most of these companies are $20million earners a year (minimum).
Some are $200 million earning (plus) companies per annum. There’s money in making multi-vitamins that boost nutrition and the health industries.
One example of a bigger company is Maat Vitamins. They combine ingredients to make vitamins. They are listed as a ‘custom manufacturer.’
Their markets are: Latin America/Caribbean, Western Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia, Australia, Europe, Canada and Mexico. Their website is: www.e-maat.com. Maat’s product focus in specializing in being a: Contract manufacturer of vitamins including Ester-C complex with bioflavonoids tablets, vitamin E 400 IU softgels, B-50 complex tablets, vitamin B-6 100 mg tablets, vitamin C 500 tablets, therapeutic vitamin & mineral formula tablets & vitamin B-12 1000 mg sublingual lozenges tablets. Vitamin E tablets help in red-blood cell formation, prevent oxidation of free radicals & treat circulatory problems, lung toxicity, menopause, burns & acne.
