Other membership types:


Schools with students in Business Studies, economics or an enterprise scheme may wish to join the Buy NZ Made campaign and obtain a licence to use the logo for their students.

Schools receive the same benefits as a Gold Manufacturer which means their students not only receive a licence to use the logo on their innovative NZ Made products, but they can also list them in their online profile.

Benefits FREE

How to join as a school:

A contact for the school fills out the "School application form" and each student who wishes to use the logo fills out the "Student Enterprise Application" form.

Additional profile by brand or associated business

Join Here

We realise sometimes that a company may be out there with more than one brand or identity that is all managed from the same office.

This is what our associate membership covers.

The cost for an associate member is a one off fee of $75.00, and any additional staff that may not have been counted under the parent membership, are added on to the parents annual fee.
