Horticulture support

The horticulture industry is currently experiencing the fastest growth in the New Zealand Primary Sector. Alongside this, New Zealand has developed a range of exciting horticulture technology solutions. Callaghan Innovation is working with industry and other government agencies as part of the Agritech Industry Transformation Plan (ITP) to turbocharge global growth for New Zealand’s agritech sector.

The Horticulture Technology Catalyst 

The Horticulture Technology Catalyst (Hort Tech Catalyst) aims to help New Zealand horticulture technology businesses to navigate their most effective local and global channels to market.

It will do this by:

  • Facilitating collaborations to solve real-world industry problems, such as through networking events.
  • Project leadership, facilitation, and support services for key initiatives to enable faster commercialisation and globalisation of horticulture technology.
  • Boosting an industry-ready talent pipeline, to support the growing horticulture technology sector, such as through regional talent attraction and retention initiatives. 

The Hort Tech Catalyst is currently in development, and we’ll provide further updates in the coming months.
