Seed Industry Opens New Office in Templeton, Christchurch
The New Zealand seed industry is pleased to announce the official opening of its new office in Templeton, Christchurch.
The opening on Wednesday was officiated by the Hon Nathan Guy, Minister for Primary Industries, and attended by over 100 VIPs and guests including Kelvin Coe, the Mayor of Selwyn District.
“It’s a huge honour for our industry to have the Minister officiate and his acknowledgement of the vital importance of our sector to the wider primary industry,” says General Manager Thomas Chin.
“Plans for a new office were forced on us as our original premises in Riccarton were affected by the 2011 earthquake.
“The Templeton location is a sensible choice for us and for our members given the site is easily accessible, close to the airport and co-located with other agri-business organisations.”
The new Seed Industry Office is the headquarters and centre of excellence for all matters related to grain and seed. The site has available a 40-seat theatrette and board room for member use.
The Seed Industry Office represents the New Zealand Grain & Seed Trade Association Inc, the New Zealand Plant Breeding and Research Association and the Arable Food Industry Council.
