Presentations from Inā te Ora-Tairāwhiti Food Futures


E hoa ma, inā te ora o te tangata – Friends, this is the essence of life

Our guiding whakatauki for Inā te Ora is sometimes used at the dinner table by guests appreciative of a good meal. Food is indeed the essence of life, it is crucial we move into the future with the knowledge, ideas and technology to sustain our growing populations.

Inā te Ora-Food Futures Tairāwhiti was a future focussed event in Tairāwhiti-the food bowl of Aotearoa. We  gathered some of the country’s foremost experts in food production, food technology and food commentary. Innovators from near and far!

Our grateful thanks go to our innovative sponsors: Ag Research, NZ Trade and Enterprise, Callaghan Innovation, Massey University and Eastland Community Trust.

Over the course of the three days we engaged in thought provoking conversations, connected with as many like minds as possible. And saw the beginnings collaborations of all kinds!
