Farmlands into the finals of the inaugural Primary Industries Awards

The finalists for the inaugural Primary Industries Awards have been announced.

The awards aim to shine a spotlight on the important role the primary sector plays in the economy, and honour the most successful and innovative industry producers and supporters.

Farmlands Co-operative has been shortlisted as a finalist for the category of ‘Innovation and Collaboration’, to be presented at a gala dinner in Wellington on 1st July.

Primary Industries Innovation and Collaboration Award Finalists:
• Farmlands, for SafeFarm and SafeVisit apps
• AgriCom/Greener Pastures, for Ecotain
• New Zealand Shearing Contractors Association, for Tahi Ngatahi

In an age of individualism, Farmlands has made a commitment to re-inventing the co-operative spirit. The organisation recognises that it is stronger, more effective and a better corporate citizen when it stands together. As a trusted pillar of New Zealand’s primary sector, Farmlands believes collaboration, leadership and innovation are key enablers of their shareholders’ future success. 

SafeFarm and SafeVisit are two ground-breaking digital applications enabled through the partnership between Farmlands and FarmIQ, a leading New Zealand software company – with the aim of making Kiwi farms safer for all.

Farmlands is looking forward to launching these apps through a collective approach in the coming months. Along with other leading players in the sector, the group believes the Health and Safety tools will be game changers in the way the primary sector views safety. Together we aim for this industry to be stronger and safer.

The awards are part of the Primary Industries Awards Summit, which takes place on 1st and 2nd July at Te Papa Tongarewa Museum of New Zealand, Wellington. The conference is a partnership between Federated Farmers and Conferenz.
