ConversationNZ

ConversatioNZ is about bringing together people who have impact on the food industry here in New Zealand - chefs, writers, growers, artisan producers and the food distributors.

We dream big! We want to challenge, inspire and push ourselves to the next level, to have a voice of our own and create strong community around food in New Zealand.

ConversatioNZ is born from a idea of a small circle of individuals to bring together a food community. It is about looking deep within and finding new ways to work together; to inspire, to learn and grow. This is not about money nor financial gain, it is about a way of life/work/play and looking into the future.
