Grow 2019 Boma NZ Agri Summit: What's the future of food and fibre in NZ?

Wednesday, February 13, 2019   Posted in: Conferences By: Administrator With tags: conferences, business, Food, environmental health, economy

Grow 2019: the Boma NZ Agri Summit will look at the big questions: how what we grow—whether for food or fibre—affects our economy, our environment, our future. This two-day event packed with info on future farming trends, exponential change, new business models and product pathways impacting the food and fibre sector across New Zealand.

Our vision is to help Aotearoa’s food and fibre sector become more innovative, sustainable, collaborative, and profitable, now and into the future.

Grow 2019 is designed to empower you to take tangible action, so you leave ready for what comes next.

Dates: Wednesday 10th and Thursday 11th April 2019.
Time: 10am to 5pm both days.
Location: Horncastle Arena (Christchurch).
Cost: $745 per person plus GST - early bird discount available until Friday 15th March 2019. Discounts available for farmers and youth.

The 5 themes of the summit are:

  • Disruption: Emerging technologies and ideas with the potential to disrupt the status quo.
  • Transformation: How technology is transforming the food and fibre sector.
  • Kaitiakitanga: Sustainable practices for today and tomorrow.
  • Adaptation: New products and new business models for the changing face of the market.
  • Action: Workshops and conversations to turn ideas into action.

"When I was four years old, my mother founded a cooking school." says CEO of Boma NZ Kaila Corbin.

"She started it in our kitchen, offering classes in the evenings after putting my sister and me to bed. Eventually, it grew to occupy two floors of a building downtown.

"I grew up eating fresh, whole, innovative, healthy meals, whether prepared by my mother or one of the myriad chefs-in-training who came into our lives.

"I learned to develop a deep appreciation for where our food comes from, for its impact on our health, and for its connection to our whakapapa."
