B+LNZ works to ensure our farmers receive increased value from our sustainable farming systems and natural grass-fed beef and lamb – we identify and create market opportunities, work to dismantle trade barriers and grow consumer preference for NZ beef and lamb.
Our sector is committed to improving our waterways and sheep and beef farmers have done a huge amount of work to protect and enhance freshwater health. We work to help farmers achieve positive outcomes and we advocate for practical and workable rules. Find out more about our work in this area.
The red meat sector is committed to playing our part in addressing climate change and has already made significant progress. Climate change is a particular focus for B+LNZ – we support our farmers on-farm, we work with leading climate scientists and we advocate for emissions reduction targets that are science-based and fair.
B+LNZ supports sheep and beef farmers to protect and enhance New Zealand's unique indigenous biodiversity. Farmers are passionate kaitiaki or guardians of the land, and B+LNZ's advocates for policies that enable farmers to protect and restore on-farm biodiversity within their farming systems.
