The Food and Beverage Information Project

The Food and Beverage Information Project regularly publishes reports to provide a comprehensive analysis of the state of New Zealand’s food and beverage (F&B) industry. The series includes both summary and in-depth reports on New Zealand’s food producing sectors.

Using a business friendly format, the reports provide data on export growth, key markets, trends, production metrics, employment, profiles of major firms, recent investments, mergers and acquisitions, emerging growth opportunities for investors and international benchmarking of performance.

An Investor’s Guide to the New Zealand Food and Beverage Industry is also published annually.

The information is used by businesses, investors, government, and research institutions.

Visit the Food and Beverage directory - comprehensive information on over 1,000 companies in the food and beverage sector.
