About Kiwi and Associates
Kiwi and Associates (K+A) has provided exporting advice to New Zealand, Australian and Pacifica organisations for nearly 20 years. K+A provides compliance assistance for non-US companies in the food and beverage industry, for either human or animal consumption.
FDA registration is required for all companies that manufacture, process, pack, or store food and/or beverages that may be consumed in the States. Exporters from outside U.S.A. must designate a US Agent with a location in the US for FDA communications. K+A can do this for you, as we are a New Zealand-based company with an office in Honolulu, Hawaii.
K+A is not aligned with any particular shipping or air freight organisation, enabling you to choose your own providers independent of your US exporting compliance needs.
K+A was formed in 2003 by Robyn Bartram. In visiting trade shows and in her close work with NZ Trade and Enterprise, Robyn identified that there was a need to help organisations that export to navigate through the FDA red tape.
In 2009, the company structure was expanded to allow for future growth. In 2016, we have further developed our business with the addition of a dedicated Client Relationship Manager, Brooke McPheat coinciding with the well-earned retirement of Robyn in 2017. Brooke is available for your call, text or email and can assist you same day.
Victoria lives in Wellington with her 12 year old daughter AJ. Victoria completed an MBA in 2005 at Victoria University in Wellington and as an overseas student at Lancaster Business School in the UK. Since then she has become a business and governance programme manager and is an academically qualified accountant.
Victoria's skills are the financial aspects of any business, strategy and planning and client relationships.
Brooke calls Wellington her home with her two daughters and husband. She has a Bachelor of Commerce in Marketing and Management and extensive experience in customer service and product management in both domestic and international markets. Brooke is passionate about helping New Zealand organisations be the best they can be by building long term business relationships.

Catherine is currently contracting for a large government department.
