Ministry for Primary Industries

Manatū Ahu Matua

Our vision is to grow and protect New Zealand. We do this by: maximising export opportunities for the primary industries; improving sector productivity; increasing sustainable resource use; and protecting New Zealand from biological risk.

MPI is positioned to deliver high-quality services and support to the whole of the primary sector.
