Future Proteins: Risk or opportunity for Māori agribusiness?

March 2024

Agriculture is woven into Aotearoa New Zealand’s national identity. A future that embraces alternative methods of accessing proteins has the potential for significant disruption at all levels of our society. however this also brings with it unique opportunities.

This 4-page summary looks at two key areas:

  • What are the opportunities from a shift to any of the viable options for alternative proteins, to address social, environmental, cultural, and economic issues associated with ruminant-based agriculture systems for New Zealand?
  • What is the implication of such a shift in food production for Māori (producers and consumers) and how does this fit within te ao Māori?

The summary identifies some key risks and several opportunities for Māori agribusiness.
