Agribusiness New Zealand

Agribusiness New Zealand is a New Zealand-based, global-focussed company that specialises in three things: Exporting, investment and international agricultural projects. We sell multiple New Zealand,  Australian and South American products into several different markets. We source and facilitate investment into global agri-projects, including New Zealand based projects, and we build and consult on agricultural capacity in countries through our international projects.

Agribusiness New Zealand has been involved in exporting over 10,000 live dairy cattle to China. We also export beef and sheep meats, poultry, seafood and other products into China and have recently launched our New Zealand fresh milk brand, “Southern Pure” . This milk is flown to China and is fully traceable back to the New Zealand farms it was produced on.  We also have the ability to export other livestock such as Sheep, Alpacas and Goats from both New Zealand and Australia. In addition to this we are able to supply animal nutrition and animal by-products from South America, along with horticulture and wine products from New Zealand. 

Agribusiness New Zealand is involved in facilitating agricultural investments globally and has been involved with projects in Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Australia and New Zealand.
