Plant & Food Research

At Plant & Food Research, we believe science can create a better future.

By finding smarter, greener options today, we’re helping secure the world we want to live in tomorrow for future generations.

With our partners, we use world-leading science to improve the way they grow, fish, harvest and share food.

Every day, we have 1000 people working across Aotearoa New Zealand and the world to help deliver healthy foods from the world’s most sustainable systems.

New fruits, better grains, less chemicals, stronger biosecurity, higher yields, great nutrition, reduced waste.

We answer complex biological questions; we design innovative products and technologies; and we look over the horizon for new ways to make a smart green future.
