What Is New Zealand

AgriFood Week?

Hosted by the Central Economic Development Agency (CEDA), New Zealand AgriFood Week sits at the intersection of agriculture, science, food and technology.

The week-long event series boasts an extensive line-up of events, forums and thought-provoking discussions that delves into the opportunities and challenges faced by our food sector, as well as the research and development, projects and innovative solutions that are meeting these head on; this is about excellence in agrifood and agritech, inspiring the next generation of farmers, scientists, innovators ​and consumers.

New Zealand AgriFood Week aims to be a global platform allowing agriculture, industry, research, policy makers and consumers to challenge, cross pollinate, foster ideas and develop clear pathways to actionable outcomes that seek to solve some of the world’s biggest food challenges.

For one week every year New Zealand AgriFood Week takes place at the epicentre of agrifood innovation in New Zealand, Manawatū. It provides the nation and the world with a window to fresh, positive views on the future of food.
