New Zealand's thriving plant production industry underpins the success of our horticulture, viticulture and forestry industries. Our industry also produces plants for landscape, revegetation projects, and home gardening, to improve our natural and urban environments.
Plant Careers is brought to you by New Zealand Plant Producers Incorporated (NZPPI) which is the industry body for all plant producers around Aotearoa. NZPPI is proud of our industry which is made of approximately 450 businesses and organisations generating an estimated $500 million each year, and employing around 4000 people. And it is still growing rapidly.
New Zealand's industry is respected globally for its know-how and innovation. It also provides permanent, high-skill career opportunities in the regions.
Overcoming a long-term skills shortage is a key priority and we are working to encourage you to pursue training and careers in skills like propagation, growing, operations, business, and technical roles.
