The Food and Beverage industry is of critical importance to New Zealand. It contributed $30.7 billion in exports in 2014; almost half New Zealand’s total exports of $66.2b, and it employs nearly one in five New Zealand workers.
The government is asking us to step up to the plate and to grow food exports, with a growth agenda setting a target of tripling our F&B exports over the next 15 years. And we have an opportunity now to gear up for being a key supplier of nutritious food for a predicted world population of nine billion people by the year 2050.
Taranaki is already well invested in growing, producing and exporting food. It has significant landholdings, capability and capacity for a vibrant food and beverage economy. But to grow, innovate and diversify demands vision, resources, knowledge and confidence. This one day conference will provide case studies, information and guidance for those who are interested in Taranaki’s Food and Beverage sector’s development.
