Experts have reported that New Zealand’s food and primary industries need to capitalise on its growing international reputation through establishing a long-term food strategy to support sustainability and ensure the country can adapt to new technologies and consumer demands. "The future of food and the primary sector: The journey to sustainability", written by Dr Anne Bardsley, Bridget Coates, Dr Stephen Goldson, Sir Peter Gluckman and Professor Matthias Kaiser states that the growing food sector is critical to our economic and environmental future. Sir Gluckman stated that New Zealand has the potential to become a ‘’global thought leader’’ in sustainability across the entire food system by taking a proactive approach emphasising the qualities of sustainable, low-carbon dairy production, agriculture, horticulture, fisheries and aquaculture. Sir Gluckman believes it is critical that Government agencies take a co-ordinated partnership approach with scientists, producers and manufacturers to support and encourage the food and production industries' journey towards a resilient future.
