seeks to accelerate innovation and identify
solutions to horticulture challenges through a
variety of Technology applications. 

A collaborative partnership founded by
sector-aligned companies in the Bay of Plenty
and now inclusive of the wider national primary
economy, who have strengths in plant-based
innovation, the organisation’s agile approach
is based on the shared challenges of its members
and the general sector. 

PlantTech has recently changed its corporate

agribusiness sector benefit focus that has
always been at the heart of the PlantTech mission. 

The organisation is based in Tauranga.
