About the topic:


The NZ dairy environment is changing. Markets are changing due to changing consumer demand and disruptive technologies. In addition, new regulator systems will mean that the physical environment will no longer be an unpriced externality. However, currently much of the NZ dairy industry is caught like a possum in the headlights, with key industry groups paralysed by group think and an apparent inability to reshape to face the future.  There is need for an informed debate as to alternative strategies.
