Convenience Matters February 2022
Welcome back to all retail and supplier members.
Our partnership with FMCG business has continued to grow from strength to strength this year with the addition of the C&I section in the 2 monthly publication.
FMCG in collaboration with NZACS have published numerous articles covering supplier and committee members profiles, predictions for the path ahead, research, and innovation in the NZ market.
NZACS will continue to engage with government on SFA proposals. We outlined our position in the press release below and will make our submissions with the intent of highlighting the logic in allowing “Organised Convenience”, NZACS member retailers, to continue selling tobacco and vaping products. We will also keep pushing for the reintroduction of a limited range of approved vaping flavours.
2021 Award Winners
The Peter Jowett Scholarship and 2021 industry awards were hosted online on November 30th last year. With around 100 members online, PJ presenters successfully navigated the art of online presentations with a high degree of professionalism. We were also able to announce the industry award winners determined by Coalface & Coalface/CMA surveys over 2021.
