Our purpose ...

New Zealand Plant Producers Incorporated (NZPPI) is the peak industry body for plant producers and our industry partners. It's an opportunity for plant producers and their community to collaborate in shaping and growing an industry body with an influential voice that delivers value to our businesses.

It grew from work to identify a model for a producer-led industry body to advance an agenda for a broader and more inclusive community of plant producers and their industry partners.
