“There's a real purity in New Zealand. It's actually not an easy thing to find in our world anymore. It's a unique place.” - Elijah Wood
New Zealand is an island country located in the southwestern Pacific Ocean with a population of only 4 million people despite a land mass larger than Great Britain.
With an unspoiled natural environment, tourism and agriculture play an important role in the New Zealand economy
Because of its remoteness, New Zealand is free from many of the diseases and pests affecting agricultural production in many parts of the world. Extremely strict bio-hazard controls are maintained at the borders to protect New Zealand's agricultural industry.
New Zealand is the worlds largest exporter of dairy products and is a major global exporter of red meats, wool, fish, and other primary produce.
The country's unique unspoiled environment provides many advantages in agricultural production.
From New Zealand’s snow clad mountains pristine alpine streams flow down forested valleys forming rivers that meander across fertile grassland plains. The New Zealand dairy herd feeds on these lush pastures. It is the natural grassland pasture feeding systems that make New Zealand's milk so unique in the world.
Complementing its natural advantages New Zealand has developed world leading dairy and food production systems supported by state of the art processing industries.
This ensures New Zealand delivers the world’s finest quality natural food products to global markets
