Avocado industry in Northland workshop
October 26 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pmFree
NZ Avocado, as the industry body, intends to enable and support successful avocado industry growth. Significant investment has been made into avocados over the past five to ten years, with the largest developments in Northland.
Northland is a region being highlighted by the NZ government, through MPI, as a region of focus, at the same time as horticulture is a sector of focus. This focus has enabled NZ Avocado to source funding from MPI to understand the potential for avocados in Northland, to explore the actions required to enable that potential, to recognise the challenges and barriers, and identify any activities NZ Avocado, as the industry body, can undertake, to support this growth.
NZ Avocado has commissioned Deloitte to investigate the potential value proposition for the avocado industry in Northland.
We are taking a number of steps to address this topic, including conducting workshops with key industry stakeholders. These workshops will focus on understanding stakeholder perspectives, agendas, concerns, and challenges within the context of expanding the avocado industry in Northland. Over the course of the workshops, other topics may well emerge, with the intention that all topics will be brought to the table.
Deloitte will facilitate three workshops in Northland.
Please note that these workshops have been postponed till late October due Auckland being in alert level 4. Please see the revised dates and venues below.
