Doing Business with Us


If you have an opportunity to exploit or a problem to solve relating to the value, productivity and profitability of New Zealand’s pastoral, agri-food and agri-technology sector value chains, AgResearch is here to help you.

AgResearch’s Partnerships & Programmes Group can work with you to discover how research, development and technology can help your business grow.

We can put together the best research and development team to tackle your problem or opportunity, drawing together the skills you need from across AgResearch, from other Crown Research Institutes, universities and a wide range of partner organisations in New Zealand and overseas. We can help you seek co-investment, if your project is eligible, from New Zealand government agencies and find other organisations that may share your interest in a common issue. Finally, we will work with you to ensure that the research and development we deliver meets your needs and is delivered when and how you want it.

AgResearch’s research and development often results in products, services or intellectual property that are made available through partner firms, subsidiary companies or licenses. The Investment Team is responsible for managing these research and development outcomes to create the best value for our customers and for New Zealand as a whole. See the links on the left for IP licensing, products and services.
