New partnership around food production.


New Zealand’s FoodHQ – a network of science and innovation partners, including Massey University – and Foodvalley in the Netherlands have formed a partnership to support sustainable food production.

The two groups will endeavour share insights and embark on joint initiatives, including an initial project on sustainable protein-rich foods.

Foodvalley is a region in the Netherlands where international food companies, research institutes, based at Wageningen University and Research Centre are concentrated. FoodHQ is a partnership to grow New Zealand’s reputation in food and beverage innovation headquartered in Manawatū.

FoodHQ chief executive Dr Abby Thompson says the parties will work together to support their respective food industries in furthering their ambitions for more sustainable food production.

“The sustainable success of our respective food sectors are vital to both the Netherlands and New Zealand,” Dr Thompson says. “FoodHQ and Foodvalley already have an excellent relationship, and this announcement is the natural next step in formalising our partnership and demonstrating our commitment to working together in a practical way.”
