Our goal at Plant & Food Research is to enable the production of healthy and enjoyable food in ways that don’t harm people or planet. We not only want to help our partners and customers improve the sustainability of their businesses, but also to lead by example.
We’ve adopted the Future-Fit Business Benchmark to identify and account for any shortfalls in our sustainability performance (the 23 ‘Break-Even Goals’), and to describe the value we create directly through our own activities and indirectly through helping others become more sustainable (the 24 ‘Positive Pursuits’).
By finding smarter, greener options today, we’re helping secure the world we want to live in tomorrow. With our partners, we use world-leading science to improve the way they grow, fish, harvest, prepare and share food. Every day, we have 1,000 people working across Aotearoa New Zealand and the world to help deliver healthy foods from the world’s most sustainable systems.
We answer complex biological questions; we design innovative products and technologies; and we look over the horizon for new ways to grow a smart green future.
Our Statement of Corporate Intent outlines how we’re addressing our operational sustainability guided by the Break-Even Goals, while our Integrated Annual Report demonstrates how our work is helping people and planet – our Positive Pursuits.
