The creation of a single entity would strengthen the marketing of New Zealand meat products overseas.

The concept is based on a combined industry structure,– under the proposal, 80% of New Zealand’s livestock supply would be managed, from farm to market by a single entity.

New Zealand processor PPCS has already shown interest in the concept. Reportedly, Alliance and PPCS account for about 59% of sheepmeat, 37% of beef and 78% of venison exports.
