Conference theme

The theme of this year’s conference is Growth and Resilience.

At the 2019 PNZ Conference we’ll celebrate how far we’ve come, the value of our industry now sitting at just over 1 billion dollars and we’ll consider how we protect and grow that value.

Looking to the future of farming, we’ll discuss the challenges we face and the research and development projects which aim to keep us resilient in times of change. All the way from paddock to processing to plate.
