Who we are

Established in 2002, we are a Wellington-based company that works to solve market access challenges for New Zealand’s primary sector by focusing on plant health research, food safety, crop protection compliance, biosecurity, export market requirements and industry management.

We utilise our technical expertise, and knowledge of international standards and agreements, to engage in effective communication with regulatory agencies and the science community to grow the primary sector.


This year we are celebrating 20 years of service to the horticulture industry, and wider primary sector.  We commissioned the production of a small booklet, summarising the highlights of the last 20 years. An extract of this was recently published in The Grower and The Orchardist. Read more here.
