Event description

Perspective 2025 Logo-01




Female leaders across the primary industries come together for this thought-provoking and problem solving board-room style discussion. Speakers bring their different perspectives and experience into one conversation, focused on the future of food production, during this breakfast-time event.

P2025 will be chaired by Rural Exchange host Sarah Perriam and provides attendees with unique and rare insight into a single conversation between some of the country’s most influential women, who are changing the way food is produced, marketed and sold around the world.

Speakers will talk to topics like international market trends, the latest data and consumer insights and the opportunities New Zealand companies can create for themselves if they collaborate and attract global businesses to their skills and expertise, together.

Join us for ASB Persepective 2025 as we explore these themes and more, during New Zealand AgriFood Week.
