KPMG and the University of Waikato are partnering to deliver a new six-week course designed for rural professionals seeking to expand their knowledge in New Zealand’s food and fibre sector.
New Zealand’s signing of the US/EU Global Methane Pledge at COP26 could become a “massive structural risk to our food and fibre sector,” says KPMG’s Ian Proudfoot.
A not-too-distant future where food manufacturers sell products straight to doctors or producers are paid based on nutrition has been mooted in new research that peers into the future of the sector to 2040.
Export disruptions, labour shortages and regulatory pressures are hurting morale in the sector.
