But many Kiwi officials have expressed their desire to see New Zealand carve out a trade deal with the UK instead.
Mr Junker and Bill English, New Zealand’s prime minister were expected to discuss bilateral trade negotiations that could start in the upcoming months.
New Zealand is one of the few countries which does not either already have a free trade agreement or is negotiating one with the EU.
Mr Tableau, from New Zealand’s First Party, has warned European attitudes on agriculture are likely to cause “deep trouble”.
He said: “Ireland, Poland, Germany, and France have expressed concerns about allowing [New Zealand] dairy into their free trade deals.”
New Zealand’s new prime minister Bill English is set to hold talks with the EU
He would prefer to see Mr English engage in talks with the UK instead of the EU.
He told Politico: “Given the all-powerful European farmer lobby likes New Zealand like a hole in the back of the head, our deal with the EU isn’t going to go very far, very fast.
“We need to face facts and put our energies into a more likely trade deal with the United Kingdom after its separation from the EU.”

He will also meet London Mayor Sadiq Khan, European Council President Donald Tusk, Juncker and European Parliament President Martin Schulz.
And it seems that Mr English, New Zealand’s 39th prime minister, is determined to be his own man and wants to focus on getting new trade deals.
