The New Zealand Institute for Plant and Food Research Limited

At Plant & Food Research, we believe science can create a better future. 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 1000 people working across Aotearoa New Zealand and the world to help deliver healthy foods from the world’s most sustainable systems.

New fruits, better grains, smarter use of chemicals, stronger biosecurity, higher yields, exciting foods, great nutrition, reduced waste.

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 research creates healthy, nutritious foods produced from the world’s best food systems.

We understand what consumers want and apply our knowledge in the lab and field to create new foods with great nutrition and that appeal to consumers, whether they want novel colours, longer shelf life or the perfect food for eating on the go.

We also understand the biology of natural systems and use this to help the plant- and marine-based food sectors produce more and better food, using fewer inputs, and making the most from everything they harvest, while strengthening the resilience of productive ecosystems.
