International Development

We believe science has the power to change the world and work with local growers in developing countries to share our knowledge and tools to help increase their efficiency and productivity. Our science grows businesses and transforms lives.

Development projects allow us to use our science capabilities to develop projects that benefit communities in developing countries and support New Zealand’s human effort overseas. We work with funding agencies and research partners to identify areas where our skills and technologies may support industries overseas with specific issues or where there is a defined market opportunity that can be realised for the benefit of the local community.
