Event description
Kiwifruit: The Taranaki Opportunity

About this Event

Kiwifruit has long been a New Zealand icon, a proven success story in some parts of the country, and is worthy of consideration when deciding what to grow here in Taranaki.

Venture Taranaki is hosting this event to progress the objectives of the Branching Out project – investigating alternative land use, and establishing new food and fibre value chains to add further value to our regional economy.

This invite is extended to landowners, potential growers, financial decision makers (bankers, accountants and brokers), along with agricultural advisers and support services, and food production companies to attend.

Topics covered will include:

  • the kiwifruit supply chain – from industry support for new growers to packing and export logistics
  • the projected global demand
  • the potential risks and returns
  • first hand insights
  • some Taranaki-specific myth-busting.

Presenters will include:

  • Venture Taranaki – Regional strategy/Branching Out Project - overview
  • Zespri – the world’s largest marketer of kiwifruit
  • Apata – a specialist service provider for New Zealand kiwifruit growers
  • Farm Ventures – the Taranaki-based, independent kiwifruit expert
  • A former local grower
  • A financial service adviser

We will start at 12:30pm, and light refreshments will be offered from 2pm with an opportunity to network with the presenters.
