Export Potential?

Recently on our trip overseas, we came across Elderflower cordial offered on a menu in a Dresden (Germany) restaurant. The picture to the right is of elderflowers in full bloom across Staces Road from the New Zealand School of Export. I know elder trees are widespread in New Zealand - maybe there is export potential here in harvesting and producing a marketable product?!

Looking for Other Trade Blogs

This is a link to the blogs which are listed on the FITA site - most are very specific to trade leads and making links between products and buyers. However it is interesting to see what is happening and the kind of talk going on. The TraLIS blog with its emphasis on the information aspects of international trade seems to be unique. It would be good to be proved wrong.....
