The road to 2030 – New Zealand’s agrifood role in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

If the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are met, how would this influence the New Zealand agrifood value chain and the nation’s pride in it?

Internationally and nationally recognised speakers will come together on Wednesday 18 March to challenge, debate, and discuss these popular global goals, their influence on the New Zealand agrifood value c

hain, and how we can use them to proudly continue to build our own agrifood brand in New Zealand.

The event will feature thought-provoking keynote speakers and panel-style discussions, guests will be welcome to ask questions and engage with speakers, tapping into their fields of expertise, experience and research.

This three and a half hour event is a must-attend event for anyone interested in disruptive technologies, the UNs Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and how we can continue to transform the agrifood value chain for the future of food in New Zealand and beyond.


Your ticket will include an appetizing array of locally sourced food and beverages that will be served 'grazing style' throughout the day.
