Our purpose ...

New Zealand Plant Producers Incorporated (NZPPI) formed late in July 2016 and is now well underway. It's an opportunity for plant producers and our industry partners to shape and grow an industry body with an influential voice that delivers value to our businesses.

NZPPI grew from work to identify a new model for a producer-led industry body and a decision to remodel NGINZ. We're working now on that transition.
