The New Zealand organic sector has grown by more than 11% per annum since 2012, according to the 2016 New Zealand Organic Market Report.
A national voice for organics
Organics Aotearoa New Zealand (OANZ) represents the interests of the New Zealand organic sector.
Member organisations include organic consumers and gardeners, Māori organic producers, the producers and processors of organic wine, juice and beer, meat, dairy, wool, fruit, vegetables, honey, herbal and personal care products, plus exporters and domestic traders in organic products.
Research shows that organic agriculture systems are much better than non-organic systems at conserving soil and water, protecting wildlife and ecosystems, and reducing pollution from farming.
Increasing the amount of land under organic management is a vital step towards ensuring a healthy natural environment now and forever.
