B+LNZ Webinar: Global Market & Taste Pure Nature Update

B+LNZ was excited to bring you an update on the global market and Taste Pure Nature as part of its National Webinar Series.



Update on the Global Market & Taste Pure Nature country of origin brand

In this webinar, our listeners received a global perspective on the red meat sector’s supply chains from one of New Zealand’s largest processors ANZCO, and gained insights into Taste Pure Nature’s marketing activities in both the United States (live from Crafted Communications in California) and China. We also heard how the sector has pivoted in response to COVID-19 and the plan going forward in a post COVID-19 world.

This was an opportunity to hear directly from the people involved and ask your questions in a Q&A session.
