This year saw an increase in demand for health and wellness products, with Athletic Greens, Comvita, Good Health and Naturies taking out top spots. The results have shown that New Zealand milk product brands, such as a2 and Anchor, remain popular amongst Chinese consumers.
EZZ Life Science Holdings, who this year took part in their fourth and most successful 11.11, set a new company record in sales and served 17,560 customers via its online presence on Tmall Global.
