Sustainable relationships create a sustainable industry

Our Value Chain – a new approach to business

The strength of the Collective is broadly defined. It considers a long-term view when identifying opportunities. It requires a sense of responsibility to care for and nurture that which has been passed on to us, as well as to create the conditions for future generations to prosper.


Our values and tikanga practices play a vital role in both social and commercial activities. They are inherent in the way we do business and the Māori economy is being propelled by a young and emerging generation of business leaders who remain connected to their tikanga while operating confidently in the world.'
