RA Advocacy

We are proud to be a vocal, impassioned leader for our sector, having been in the corner of Kiwi hospitality businesses since 1972.

We are a voice for our members and our sector on everything that may impact the Hospitality industry. From advocating for financial assistance during difficult times, to how much you get charged per credit card transaction, to immigration policies – we’ve advocated on your behalf on it all.

Explore our advocacy work, recent wins and long-term strategic projects below, and learn more about what advocacy is and what we aim to achieve through our advocacy here.

Get involved

If you’d like to get involved in our advocacy work, one of the best things you can do is to reach out to your local Member of Parliament or councillor to help bolster our efforts.

We’ve created a template here that you can use to get in touch with your local politicians, which includes space for you to personalise and include your own story. Tailor it as you’d like, then address and email it to your local MP.

You can find out who your local MP is here, or get in touch with our team at info@restaurantnz.co.nz if you’d like some help!
