About the Kiwi Trademark

The stylised Kiwi trademark is available for and used by licence holders of the Buy New Zealand Made Campaign.

The trademark signifies that a product or service is New Zealand Made according to the rules of the Fair Trading Act. As a registered trademark, it has a strict set of rules (Code of Practice) governing how it can be used. Products must be registered with BNZM and must meet the criteria in the Code of Practice to use the trademark.

Re-established in 1988, this iconic trademark is used as a significant marketing tool for businesses. When products carry the registered Kiwi trademark customers can be confident that the country of origin is New Zealand.
