Learn how SFF Futures can help bring your ideas to life.
Every innovation, every leap forward, every new way of doing something, starts with an idea.
Often that’s the easy part. The real challenge is bringing it to life.
Now there’s a way to make that easier. A way to connect with others, to help explore and discover new perspectives, new opportunities, and new ways of doing things. A way to collaborate and take ideas from “it’s possible” to “we did it”. A way to shift gear and meet our challenges head on and create a richer future for our mokopuna.
A way to get behind those with big ideas… and even bigger aspirations. To give flight to truly transformative initiatives being developed for the benefit and prosperity of the collective good – for our sectors, our people, our environment and our country.
SFF Futures is a new investment programme from the Ministry for Primary Industries designed to back new game-changing innovations across the food and fibre sectors. With an annual budget of $40 million and the scope to co-fund projects under $100,000 to over $5 million, SFF Futures offers investment opportunities for innovative initiatives at every level from small grassroots community projects to large-scale industry development.
The food and fibre sectors need new ideas and we want to help bring them to life. We need to keep pace with the changing world around us, to improve sustainability, to deliver more value, and to position ourselves as global leaders in our sectors.
If you have an idea – big or small – that you think New Zealand needs, talk with us now, and let’s see how we can go about making it happen.
SFF Futures. Make it happen.
