Food Futures presented two events focused on the opportunities for Taranaki’s food sector, presented by Massey University in partnership with Venture Taranaki.

Food Futures Taranaki events were held in January and October 2016, with the aim of fostering conversations around future opportunities for Taranaki's food production sector, and further grow Taranaki's contribution of good and diverse food products for a growing New Zealand and world population.

The events presented a range of industry, research and other experts who have worked their way up from the bench to getting real runs on the board, including some great success stories within our own region.

Presenters shared their thinking, information and experiences to help guide emerging producers through developing new food businesses, food products, and markets, highlighting resources within Taranaki and beyond that are available to assist new ventures.
