18th September 2020

In September, New Zealand celebrates National Family Business Day - a day designed to recognise the invaluable contribution family businesses make to the New Zealand economy, community and culture.


Family businesses are the backbone of New Zealand with many of New Zealand’s largest and most loved companies starting off as a family business. 

But it’s not just the large businesses that make a difference. The local corner store where you buy your morning paper, the vet you take your dog to for its annual check-up, the plumber who fixed your leaking tap, they are all likely family-owned businesses.

National Family Business Day is a chance to celebrate family business in all its forms – from the very large brands, you buy from every day to the smaller operators starting on the journey of building a future for their family.

How to get involved

This year has been challenging for many businesses and it's even more important that we come together as a united community. We encourage you to celebrate with us by holding a morning tea with your family and colleagues (whether that be at your workplace or an online morning tea celebration) on Friday 18 September

We’d love to see how you and your family business are celebrating on Friday 18 September. Share your photos across Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #nfbd20 and go in the draw to win a hamper
