Sarah Perriam has a passion for sharing the stories of New Zealand’s premium food & beverage producers. Environmental, animal welfare and global trade business-practices are often mis-understood by the public.
Sarah previously co-hosted ‘Rural Exchange’ on Magic Talk and her Friday ‘rural’ segment with Duncan Garner on the AM Show, as a platform to regularly talk about the big issues in agri-business. She is now working on new media endeavours in the agri-food space, including the launch of her new podcast in late April – “naked. hungry sober” – targeted at curious consumers and passion producers.
In 2018, she hosted the 50th “FMG Young Farmer of the Year”, live-broadcast on Newshub.co.nz and was nominated as a finalist in the “Westpac Women of Influence”.
She has recently been involved as a speaker & “MC” at many events around New Zealand, including the 2019 “Boma Grow Summit”, bringing professional pre-production management and time-management to the event, with her years as a producer and event manager.
Sarah hopes that with a public trend towards more critical thinking and “thought-lead journalism”, the primary sector is on the right track to changing the perception of farmers to that of passionate food producers.
