There is a certain energising spirit in the purity of New Zealand - like the name suggests, 'a new zeal'. Modern science continues to be amazed by the incredible balance and complex synergies displayed in natural creation. Look around you and you will see and feel energy in nature. The pounding of surf on a beach. The rustle of the forest at dawn. The morphing of clouds on a breezy day. Man cannot synthesize the same energy. New Zealand nature is alive with vitality and as a part of nature, we yearn for its sustenance. The same energising purity is captured in every bottle of UNZ.
New Zealand (Aotearoa) has its own unique history. By detaching itself from the continent of Gondwana and drifting into the Pacific, Aotearoa has been likened to an Ark, carrying a cargo of ancient plants and animals. Somewhere along the way the name "God Zone " was bestowed and accepted for this lovely land. It's no wonder when you look at the heavenly landscapes from which this name may have been inspired.
By breaking its ties with the rest of the world, New Zealand developed its own special biodiversity. Unique flora and fauna flourish down under as a result. In its early days, as the land of Aotearoa formed, its backbone was high, strong and forbidding. Its rivers crashed through canyons and exploded in floods... and at its centre was a living water . . .
New Zealand is a country of rare seismic beauty with glacial mountains, fast-flowing rivers, deep clear lakes, hissing geysers and boiling mud. There are also abundant forest reserves, rolling hillsides, long deserted beaches and a variety of fauna endemic to its shores. From these pristine origins, UNZ has matured deep down under, over 1800 years to emerge with a guarantee of 100% New Zealand purity.
MORE ABOUT NEW ZEALAND
New Zealand is located in Oceania islands in the South Pacific Ocean, south-east of Australia. New Zealand stretches 1600 km from north to south and consists of two large islands. The North Island has miles of coastline with sandy beaches, lush forests, a number of large volcanoes and highly active thermal areas, while the South Island boasts glaciers, fiords and the Southern Alps. With such stunning landscapes, unique flora and fauna and many outdoor activities,
it is no surprise that over 2 million people visit New Zealand each year.
New Zealand covers an area of only 268,680 sq km - about the same size as Japan or Colorado. Approximately 10-15% of this total land area is covered with native flora. New Zealand's climate is temperate with sharp regional contrasts. The terrain is predominately mountainous with some large coastal plains. At the lowest point of elevation is the Pacific Ocean 0 m and at the highest point is Aoraki-Mount Cook at 3,754 m.
New Zealand's natural resources include: natural gas, iron ore, sand, coal, timber, hydropower, gold and limestone.
New Zealand has a population of around 4,500,000 and 80%
of these people live in cities, leaving a large amount of uninhabited land. Land use statistics for example (1999) show the following breakdowns:
Pastoral and arable land 51%
Natural forest 24%
Other land 19%
Planted production forest 6%
Influences from settlement by the Maori, European, Polynesian and Asian nationalities have created a unique and dynamic culture rich with individuality, invention, self-reliance, friendliness, adventurousness and a 'can do' attitude that is distinctly 'Kiwi'. Trips to the beach, bush walks, hiking, mountaineering, skiing, kayaking, caving, sailing are some of the many outdoor activities enjoyed by New Zealanders.
