New Zealand imported a record number US$ 535 million of food and agricultural products from the United States in 2018, representing approximately 10 percent of total food imports. The growth of U.S. food and agricultural exports to New Zealand are primarily high-value, consumer-oriented products, although the United States does supply animal feed products as well. Exports of consumer-oriented products to New Zealand enjoyed 6 percent compound annual growth during the last five years. This is a result of an expanding economy, strong consumer demand and a positive view of U.S. foods, as well as active efforts to promote the benefits of U.S. products in New Zealand.
