Responding to Cyclone Gabrielle

Our sincerest thoughts are with the people, whānau, businesses and all others feeling the impact of Cyclone Gabrielle.

In particular, we send our aroha to our valued partners in the food and fibre sector who have been amongst those hit the hardest, as well as our many kaimahi (staff) and Council members in the worst affected regions.

We’ve already heard from our industries the critical importance of community resilience for Aotearoa going forward, and especially for the food and fibre sector. Building and supporting resilience, wellbeing and strong community networks will remain a guiding focus of our mahi this year and into the future.

We send our thanks to all those working tirelessly for their communities on the frontlines – your mahi is invalueable.

Kia kaha and stay safe. ❤️
