New Zealand's climate, fertile soil and relative isolation make it ideal for almost every kind of production - from sheep and cattle to cropping and horticulture.

It produces some of the best tasting dairy, meat, fruit, seafood and wine the world has to offer. And, being one of only two countries internationally to export more than half of its total food production, New Zealand really understands how to satisfy quality, flavour and food safety requirements.


New Zealand has a reputation as a trusted supplier of high quality and safe food to consumers in more than 100 countries. 

It sets the highest standards for its food producers to ensure that the country remains a world leader in food safety. Similarly, work is constantly being done to further develop food traceability, from farm to plate. 

Sustainability is a focus across all food-related industries, with each sector working to address its impact areas. In fact, in some cases the low intensity in which we grow and farm means our products can be grown and transported to you at a lower overall environmental impact than what you can buy locally.
