In addition to showcasing some of the county’s best scale-up opportunities, we will also be showcasing some of the country’s very early stage talent on the main stage and in the dedicated Expo Area.

Marama Labs is a spin-out company from Victoria University which is developing next generation spectroscopy instrumentation for optical analysis in the food and beverage industry. Knode is a mobile-friendly IoT app and underlying platform that helps you track and measure any liquid assets that are important to your business from water levels/pressure, LPG to the real-time location of valuable assets across farms, wineries, cities and countries.

The Hon Damien O’Connor, Minister of Agriculture, Biosecurity, Food Safety & Rural Communities will introduce the Start-up Showcase on the main plenary stage at 12.45pm.

Raising capital and showcasing New Zealand’s emerging agritech talent is just one component of the 10 Billion Mouths full-day programme.
