The Mātai Ahuwhenua/Māori Agribusiness team focuses on growing long term collaborative partnerships with Māori Agribusinesses. They connect with Māori Agribusinesses to understand their needs and explore AgResearch science opportunities that align with those needs, goals and aspirations.

What we do

The Mātai Ahuwhenua/Māori Agribusiness team builds long terms partnerships with a broad range of Māori Agribusinesses to gain a current and future view of issues and trends and identify where opportunities lie.

Māori Agribusinesses include iwi entities, Māori Trusts and Māori organisations/companies with interests in the pastoral primary sector, natural products and related agri-food businesses.

  • Growing partnerships with Māori Agribusinesses and preparing them for research collaborations to meet the current needs and future aspirations for their business, shareholders, hapū or iwi members 
  • Co-developing opportunities with impact and value for Māori Agribusinesses

 

 

 

 

 

  • Connecting Maori Agribusinesses with world-class AgResearch scientists to co-design collaborative solutions, including both Mātauranga Māori and AgResearch knowledge and capabilities
  • Expanding AgResearch’s understanding of the current and future needs of Māori Agribusinesses to inform AgResearch’s science direction
