The Ministry of Economic Development has released a report, Industry Snapshot, as one step in its five-year comprehensive review of New Zealand's food and beverage industry (known as the Food and Beverage Information Project).
The Report shows that 75 per cent of the top 64 food industry firms by turnover are owned by New Zealanders. The majority of foreign ownership is held by Japan, Australia and the US. The Report highlights the strengths of New Zealand's industry but also outlines opportunities for New Zealand to increase its exporting competitiveness.
The Report can be found here.
