AgriQuality New Zealand provides the food and agribusiness industries with credible, independent and authoritative expertise in testing, analysis and assurance services. AgriQuality New Zealand is organised into four business groups - Assurance Services, Emergency Response, Farm Network and Lab Network.

Assurance Services works alongside producers, processors and retailers to provide systems, training and advice about achieving standards, enhancing quality and adding value throughout the supply chain.

Emergency Response has a generic emergency response capability and carries out surveillance for exotic plant and animal pests and diseases.

Farm Network offers advisory and technical services that help to identify and control disease, as well as addressing other production limiting factors on farms. The business group has testing, consultancy and diagnostic capabilities.

Lab Network's services include microbiological, chemical and physical analyses for a wide range of industries including dairy, processed foods, agrichemical, environmental, wool, meat, seafood, beverage, pharmaceutical and retail.

These four business groups are comprised of 16 businesses, which offer customers a diverse and integrated set of skills. AgriQuality's 600 staff operate from 58 sites around New Zealand. This nation-wide base and pool of technical knowledge and practical capabilities means we work in a wide range of industries and situations - in the paddock, the processing plant and at the retail outlet.
