Project Discussion 29 Responses to BeeNZ

Hi Team,
To let you know, we have planned a trip to attend as a visitor to Expo West in March 2023. Does Mr Checkout have a presence there? Or would this be a good place to arrange face to face meetings with, hopefully our new customers.  We would love to hear your feedback on this. 
Kind Regards

Hello Michelle and team,
Do you know of the Soho expo / trade show – Natural Products in Orlando, happening over the next couple of days? Do you attend? 
Talking with one of the customers from Plam beach that we have sent samples out to from our introduction. He mentioned this has the major distribution companies in the natural sector that attend this show.  Would be great to have your knowledge and feedback on these.  While we can deliver direct. The feedback we are getting is, if we can move to a distributor sooner then later. It does make it easier for retailers to order in one place.
Look forward to your update or any information you may be able to share.

    The retailer was Jay @ Country Corner Health Foods- Palm Springs Fl. He did not mention a distributors name. However, we I do my follow up call after samples arrive to him. I will ask and let you know.

    Thank you so much for these. I will definately use the templates and contact them ASAP.

HI a question on bar codes. At present we use GS1 barcodes and we see alot of USA refer to the UPC bar codes. While GS1 is international. Is it necessary to have UPS barcodes? Or is this justed used as a common referal to the type that is used.

    I have just been on the phone to a few of the retailers, following up the samples we sent out. Interesting conversation, that they can not get hold of any Manuka Honey UMF15+ or Manuka Honey UMF20+ through distributors at the moment. Would it be possible to do a mail out / sales sheet drop informing the retailers we have these in stock ready to ship out

    December 12, 2022 at 8:45 pm

      With following up with the samples been received by the retailers. So far the feedback is that they would prefer to wait to get supply through a distributor as it is easier to do their “bulk”on line order with one. Do you have any suggestions?

      December 12, 2022 at 9:39 pm

I have just uploaded updated Sales report for you to have a look. I will keep trying to contact people. Please touch base to what time frames and what next steps will be. 
Kind Regards

    The retailer was Country Corner Health foods and he mentioned Kehe as the distributor that he deals with. This also was the case with Covington Supermarket. Who mentioned that they are unable to get Manuka Honey UMF15+ and 20+ with Kehe at the moment

Hello  Team.
Some exciting news about New Zealand Manuka Honey and the backing of UMFHA organisation on improving the education and information around the grading of New Zealand Manuka Honey  

January USA/UK Campaign

The UMFHA team will be making some noise to start 2023.  CEO John Rawcliffe and Marketing Manager Campbell Naish will be in the UK and US in mid-January to work with media to push message that, “Mānuka honey only comes from New Zealand, look for the UMF™ quality mark and rating on products to be sure you are buying the real deal.” Supporting information can be found in the Licence Holder Shared Files or here.The campaign is part of a programme to regularly inform trade and media that there is only one trusted source of mānuka honey, New Zealand. Also, how they can easily identify quality New Zealand mānuka honey and why it is important.  The programme integrates with the UMFHA strategy of building a globally recognised quality mark and rating that is unique to New Zealand and easily recognised by target trade and consumer audiences.In the campaign, the UMFHA will be working with print, digital, television, and radio media in the UK and US to reinforce the message that UMF™ leads the way independently validating the origin, authenticity and quality of real mānuka honey. In early January UMFHA will be providing members in with promotional kits to support the campaign including:

Press releases will be available to download and distribute 
Information booklets
Social media tiles
Linkedin campaign
A website landing page

In addition video and audio and print media clips from the campaign will be available to members as soon as they come to hand.Contact Analiese with any questions

We have received our first order from one of the retailers that reached out for Samples. Are you able to confirm the invoice process for tracking sales etc through yourselves. Or do we, BeeNZ invoice and advise of sales. 

December 19, 2022 at 3:11 am

Thanks for your reply. Is it standard practice that the retailers would expect a credit application from us.? As our goal with you would be to eventually go to a large distributor. Do we require the retailer to fill in any credit applicaiton? Or do we just supply ?

December 19, 2022 at 9:28 pm

Happy New Year. I see from Mr Goldsteins mail out, Distributors have shown interset in healther options. I would love for Mr Checkout to take us to distributor, or we could have a catch up to next stage moving forward with our products. 
Kind Regards

    Thanks for your reply.
    So we are still chasing sales, obviously. We only have one sale as of today. What is the next stage for Mr Checkout and BeeNZ? What do you suggest for getting other sales? What other support do you give to promote or get infront of your association? 
    Your expertise in this woudl be appreciated. 

    January 11, 2023 at 10:04 pm

    Hello Team
    I have uploaded an updated report sheet. We are not having any more luck with these people. Could we please move onto another avenue, to explore?
    Where do you suggest to now?Kind Regards

    January 23, 2023 at 2:12 am

    Country Corner Health foods would prefer us to be with keHe. Along with the Covington Supermarket that has placed an order. They are both strong with wanting us to be listed with KeHe. 
    It woudl be great if you could assist in a further way to introduce our company/ products. 
    We look forward to your advise and hearing about your team reaching out to the next lot of potential customers. We would really like to get into a distributor as well. 
    On another note. Myself and Julie Hayes, our managing director are coming up to Expo West. While I realise you do not have a presense at the expo. It would be great if we could visit your Anehiem office while we are there. Even meet to discuss further in person would be fabulous.

    January 23, 2023 at 9:39 pm

    HI Team
    Oh, that is a pity about Anehiem. It would have been great to meet some of the team in person.  
    We are only in LA and Anehiem for this visit.
