Inflexibility a challenge for the agrifood sector - NZIER Insight 93

06 October 2020

By Bill Kaye-Blake

COVID-19 has proved challenging for the agri-food sector. From pasture to plate, farms and businesses in the agri-food sector have reported feeling squeezed between rising costs and lower prices.

To explore the impacts of COVID-19 on the agri-food sector, NZIER collaborated with an Australia-New Zealand team, including AgResearch and The University of Queensland. NZIER led an online survey of farms and businesses across the two countries. 

In this Insight we delve in to the survey responses from New Zealand. Comparative results are expected to be published later this year.
