Hawke’s Bay wine producers are working on boosting exports to Canada from as soon as next month.
A total of $4.5 million worth of trade tariffs on New Zealand wine will be scrapped through the new Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans‑Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) free trade deal with 11 countries.
The deal has already been ratified by six countries, including Canada.
“The Canadian market is the fourth largest export market for New Zealand wine and is growing at 17 per cent year on year,” Craggy Range Winery general manager Aaron Drummond said.
