Ministry for Primary Industries

Primary industry is the backbone of our economy. At MPI we’re all about ‘growing and protecting’ New Zealand so we can become the most trusted source of high value natural products in the world.

As part of our work on biosecurity, primary production and food safety, we play a vital role in the Government’s plan to almost double our primary export to over $64 billion; accounting for 40% of GDP by the year 2025.
