OrganicNZ Awards nominations and entries close in 10 days

Soil & Health Association NZ and OANZ have announced that the next OrganicNZ Awards will take place on May 3, 2024, at The Boatshed, Wellington – as part of the Organic Week Aotearoa celebrations (May 1-7).

Nominations are now open and will close on 10 March 2024. Ten award categories aim to recognise and celebrate the outstanding achievements of Aotearoa’s organic farmers, brands, products, and leaders.

Jenny Lux, Soil & Health NZ Chairperson, said, ‘‘The OrganicNZ Awards serve as a platform to honour those who have a vision for and contribute to an organic and regenerative future for our country, promoting practices that benefit the health of the soil, crops, livestock, people, wildlife, and the climate’’.

Jenny announced two new award categories for 2024: the OrganicNZ Leader of the Year and OrganicNZ Exporter of the Year. ‘’These additions reflect our commitment to recognising a broader range of excellence and innovation in the organic sector, making the awards more inclusive and comprehensive.’’

An awards ceremony will be held in Wellington during Organic Week, May 1-7, 2024, and will not only celebrate the winners’ achievements but will also bring together industry leaders, organic advocates, and stakeholders to foster collaboration and share insights.
