The world’s population is estimated to reach nine billion by 2050, meaning the planet will need to produce as much food in the next 40 years as was produced in the past 8,000 years.
New Zealand will play a vital role in meeting some of this demand and for New Zealand AgriFood Week 2019, the theme ‘Food for Who?’ will explore the challenges and opportunities facing New Zealand food producers.
New Zealand AgriFood Week, in association with ASB, is delivered by the Central Economic Development Agency with a range of sponsors and partners. Manawatu hosts a series of events that are focused on food, agriculture and technology, and its purpose is to connect thought leaders, decision makers and future leaders from across the agrifood value chain to drive transformation and shape the future of food production and farming.
Pick and choose from our exciting line-up of events held throughout the week. New Zealand AgriFood Week runs from 11-16 March, culminating with Central District Field Days.
