Kahungunu Harvesting Our Future

Media Release – 19 June 2014
Kahungunu Harvesting Our Future

Ngāti Kahungunu Iwi is hosting a second in a series of Agribusiness Conferences to showcase current farming talent and to provide roadways into the future for landowners and shareholders who in the past leased their land to neighbouring farmers.

This conference is being held on Thursday 26th June at The Hub in Dannevirke.

We will highlight successful business women in farming and successful grouping of Māori interests that take produce from the ‘Nuku to the Puku’ meaning from the land to the tables of the world.
Dannevirke is already a hot bed of energy and innovation when it comes to farming. The success stories from this area will be a good example for other small communities that see the value of cooperation and partnership.

Ngāti Kahungunu is well known in iwi circles for our generous hospitality to visitors. This trait has built lifelong relationships throughout the country and one we want to extend to the world.

In the past our people have provided the labour force for local economic power. In the future we want that local economic power to be in our hands as well.

“What’s good for Kahungunu is good for the region, is good for the community, is good for our families”

Tāmaki-nui-a-Rua (Tararua) has a history of providing for the needs of all people and this conference is about continuing that legacy.

This conference will be launching a new category for the International Business Awards – the ‘He Kai kei aku ringa Award for Māori Excellence in Export. The award is designed to lift the profile of Māori contribution to the New Zealand economy and celebrate success in Māori international business.

Ngāti Kahungunu Iwi Incorporated will also be launching the iwi’s newly developed website in celebration of Matariki.

This event is proudly supported by the Kahungunu Asset Holding Company, Te Puni Kōkiri and the Ministry for Primary Industries.

The facilitator for the day is Taine Randall.
