OUR STRATEGIC DIRECTION
We’ve captured this on one page here.
It sets our vision for: A plant production industry widely respected for its professionalism, innovation and major contribution to New Zealand.
And it sets a clear mission - NZPPI exists to support our members by working to create a positive industry profile and business environment.
The strategy establishes five goals, which shape how NZPPI invests and operates to deliver results for our members. Under each we list some early priorities/investment areas. In brief, these are built around:
- Engagement – examples being plant producer Summits and Conference opportunities.
- Influence – an ongoing priority to respond rapidly to emerging events, e.g. leadership roles we’ve taken on in the current Myrtle rust response (including preparing for a mainland incursion) and in relation to pelleted seed imports.
- Toolbox – examples are negotiating free EMA membership for NZPPI members, and tools to assist managing cybersecurity and meeting workplace health and safe obligations.
- Image – we are putting a renewed focus on professional development for our industry and attracting talent, and investment in economic research (to help regulators/key decision-makers understand the significant economic contribution our industry makes – something grossly under-estimated at this time).
