What is NZWA?

NZWA is a not-for-profit organisation, that acts as a voice for New Zealand's progressive health and wellness industry.  Our initiatives are working to create a world-leading wellness culture, that will ultimately improve the health and wellness of New Zealanders. 

Who does NZWA represent?

NZWA represents the best interests of the consumer and we believe our united team of socially responsible companies, practitioners, social influencers and supportive consumers, will become a very large, powerful force to inspire and influence change.

How is NZWA funded?

NZWA is funded by the membership of ethical natural health companies and practitioners, as well as by consumer crowd-funding via our Givealittle page.

What we value

NZWA believes that New Zealand needs to change the way that we think about our health.  We need to shift the focus from treating symptoms and disease, to focus on restoring balance and taking preventative measures against disease.

How health supplements can help

Health supplements have an important role to play in restoring this balance and preventing disease, but current regulation prevents suppliers of health supplements from speaking honestly about their products, which stops them from reaching many people that could benefit from them.

Change in law

NZWA wants consumers to be able to make fast, smart choices in decisions that affect their health.  To allow informed freedom of choice for consumers, NZWA believes that a law change is required and is proposing a model for what the new law should look like.
