Join the conversation in Tauranga on 23 May. World-leading dairy and horticultural industries have established New Zealand’s reputation as a producer of fine food, and now the country’s collaborative agricultural ecosystem is shifting its focus to the development of sustainable ways to feed the world. Will the future of food production rely on robots and data, or a global consumer shift toward alternative proteins?

Join the discussion in Tauranga on 23 May and meet the new artisans of agricultural innovation that’s good for the world.
