Two years ago we applied for a New Zealand FernMark Licence for our Savar Natural Skin Care products.
A New Zealand business wanting to be part of the New Zealand FernMark programme needs to meet the eligibility criteria and all applications are audited by New Zealand FernMark to ensure each licensed product is 'born of New Zealand'.
To obtain a licence to use the New Zealand FernMark on a product, a business must first demonstrate that they reflect the essence of New Zealand by meeting the FernMark Licence Programme’s minimum eligibility criteria which is:
be GST registered in New Zealand
be compliant with all New Zealand laws and relevant regulations
be of good character and repute
have a substantial level of New Zealand ownership, governance and full time employees
have been exporting for a minimum of 12 months
in addition, each product to be licensed will be assessed on whether it meets the minimum requirements for being made, grown or designed in New Zealand
We are proud to be licensed by New Zealand FernMark as consumers around the globe want to know that when they buy New Zealand premium natural skin care, they can trust it is authentic. The New Zealand FernMark, as a trademark officially recognised and endorsed by the New Zealand Government, is a mark of trust that communicates a product's country of origin and connection to New Zealand.
