Event description
Join us for our next Innovation Series event where we look at the future of fibre and what we can do to support a developing ecosystem

About this Event

Fibre has a rich history in New Zealand, from wool to mohair to hemp fibres. However, an increased competition form synthetic fibres have resulted in decreased consumer demand for strong wool, resulting in the diversification and innovation of the traditional and natural fibre markets.

New Zealand prides itself on its safe and reliable reputation for the export of natural fibres as well as a comprehensive understanding of an evolving consumer mindset that places a high value on products that enhance family safety and health. This along with New Zealand’s drive for innovation has led to the development and innovative uses for our fibre markets.

As we continue to place value on our traditional markets, and leverage new raw materials with innovative uses, New Zealand will continue to build an exciting fibre ecosystem that not only delivers for growers but along the supply chain to consumers and end-users.

The wider fibre eco-system in New Zealand has traditionally been dominated by strong wool, but now New Zealand has moved towards alternative raw materials and innovative use to develop a thriving ecosystem. What is next for our traditional wool market? What can we do to further innovate our use of New Zealand fibre? What alternatives to wool are being leveraged? What role does hemp or mohair play in the development of the wider eco-system?

Join us to be part of the conversation and hear from our speakers from 2 different fibre markets who can uncover what the future of fibre looks like for New Zealand and what we can do to support a developing ecosystem. You will also hear from a veterinarian who is taking a widened and holistic view to nutrition and what part that plays in animal fibre outputs.
