WELCOME TO 2018
As we dust off the party season and look towards the coming year, there will be several things foremost in our minds. The new Labour government barely had time before Santa arrived to stamp its mark on what New Zealand will look like in coming years, and business confidence appears decidedly jittery about what it’s facing. Health Minister David Clark prefers to work with the food and beverage industry to develop better labelling systems and to set sugar reduction goals for packaged food – but he says a sugary drink tax is a strong option that will be considered seriously. Then there’s Brexit…and all it will entail for our far reaches of the Commonwealth. We look forward to publishing some informed opinion in the next few issues from experts, but all that uncertainty will worry exporters reliant on British and European markets. Throw in water issues (cost, shortages, multi-national bottled water companies taking it for ‘free’), ingredient shortages (vanilla, vitamins A and E, hops), Fonterra’s falling milk price forecast and the ‘Trump’ effect… and 2018 appears to promise some dramatic rollercoaster rides. Here at NZ Food Technology, we are looking forward to the thrills and spills. Have a great year.
