He tuatahinga te whainga wāhi atu a tētahi rōpū pakihi Māori ki tētahi tauhokohoko matua ā-ipurangi ki Haina, ko Tmall tēra o te rōpū o Alibaba. Ko te Hui Māori Collective tēra ka whiwhi tūnga mō ngā tino rawa Māori hei mea hoko atu ki te hunga o Haina.

He papa hokohoko ā-ipuranga hei toro i te ringa pakihi Māori ki Haina. 

Ko tā te Minita Whanaketanga Māori a Nanaia Mahuta,"Ki tāku titiro he mea pai ake i te mea kua whai whakaaro nga kamupene Māori nga pakihi Māori me anga ki wāhi kē.”

Tekau mā toru ngā pakihi Māori kua waimaria ki te hoko atu i a rātou tino kai ki te toru rau miriona kaihoko ki Haina. 

Ko ngā rawa hei hoko atu ko te paura Miraka, he waina a pakihi Tuku Māori Winemakers, he mīere Mānuka, he kai paramanawa he inu kawakawa hoki. Ma te whai tiwhikete motuhake e mana ai he kai Māori tuturu.

Ko tā Mabel Murray, Kaiwhakahaere ki Kai Ora Honey "most of the businesses on this platform can connect back to the grassroots which means they will be able to carry out the traceability process right through to the end consumer."  

Tata ki te waru rau mano tāra te utu ki te whakatū i  tēnei kaupapa, ko te nuinga o ngā pūtea ka taka mai i Te Puni Kōkiri me etahi o ngā pakihi . Ko te toenga mai te Taurapa Tūhono, NZ Post, AsureQuality me te Poutama Trust.

Ko tā Mahuta “"He timatatanga tenei ina ka taea te kite i nga hua he wahanga ano ki taku mōhio ma etahi atu o nga umanga nga pakihi kia eke i runga i tēnei taumata. 

Ko tā Nuk Korako, Māngai take Māori o Nāhinara "I think this is a fantastic opportunity for Māori Businesses but this reflects a lot of the work that was done over the last three to five years under the National Government."

I tuwhera te wahanga Māori ki te ipurangi i tēnei rā, engari ka puta te kōrero waitohu ā-rōpū ki Shanghai hei te Nōema.
