AgriTechNZ is pleased to partner with the Government’s multi-agency, joined-up industry strategy, the Agritech Industry Transformation Plan (ITP).

The Agritech ITP was launched in July 2020 and set out the steps that Government and industry would take to accelerate the growth of New Zealand’s agritech sector.

New Zealand’s agritech sector has historically been a significant contributor to increasing the sustainability and productivity of our food and fibre sectors. It is grounded in strong innovation and New Zealand’s excellence in food and fibre production. The ITP seeks to grow the agritech sector into an economic driver in its own right. This builds on the opportunity presented by a high-value sector with a strong regional presence and potential for growth.

Globally, agritech remains the sought for answer to many of the world’s food and climate challenges. The conditions are primed for further progress by the sector in response and contribution to these challenges.

Across our Executive Council, Industry Reference Groups and Agritech ITP Industry Steering Group we witness individuals and their organisations leaning into the work that will benefit all.

We have worked hard to engage and represent the many voices across our industry and will continue to do so.
