Sir Graeme Harrison is our guest speaker for October and will update us on the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA).

We will be at the Corinthian Conventions Centre, Invercargill Working Men's Club. Come at 6:45pm for a complimentary drink and nibbles and meet our new Hub Chair, Jolene Germann.

Sir Graeme has worked in various roles associated with the New Zealand meat industry since 1973, spending more than one-third of his time resident overseas. From a Mid Canterbury farming family and as an MA (Hons) graduate, he was briefly with the Department of Trade and Industry before joining the New Zealand Meat Producers Board. There he became a Deputy Chief Executive, before founding what is now ANZCO Foods, in 1984. After 20 years as Managing Director, he became ANZCO’s Chairman in 2004.

Outside the ANZCO Group, Sir Graeme, in his early career, was a member of joint industry missions to the Middle East and North Africa. He served on leading industry organisations, including the Council of the Meat Industry Association, and as a director of Meat & Wool New Zealand, the New Zealand Meat Board and the consortium New Zealand Lamb Company in North America.

He has also, since their establishment, been Managing Director of ANZCO’s two joint ventures with Itoham Foods, Five Star Beef and Itoham New Zealand. A natural entrepreneur, Sir Graeme actively champions New Zealand agribusiness and sees a huge potential for the agricultural, forestry, seafood and mineral sectors.

In addition, Sir Graeme’s commitment to developing export opportunities involves being an independent director of Westland Milk Products, a board member of Sealord, and chairman of the New Zealand International Business Forum. In 2010, Sir Graeme was named Federated Farmers’ Agribusiness person of the year.

Proudly supported by ANZ, DairyNZ and RMPP.
