ANZCO Foods Ltd

ANZCO Foods is a multinational group of companies and one of New Zealand’s largest exporters, with sales of $1.3 billion and employing more than 3000 staff worldwide.

A new innovation programme that will look at how more value can be generated from beef carcases has been approved for Government funding from the Primary Growth Partnership (PGP). The new Foodplus programme will identify opportunities to create innovative new products in three markets: food, ingredients and healthcare.

Rennie Davidson, CEO of ANZCO’s Food & Solutions division said ANZCO welcomed the opportunity to partner with the Crown on the Foodplus programme. “It is a large-scale project that wouldn’t be achievable without collaboration. We’re excited about the potential that this will bring to the sector.”

The PGP Fund is committing $43.5 million over seven years for the programme, which is worth $87 million in total and is being run by ANZCO Foods.


“ANZCO Foods has been working with Catalyst® Ltd for six years now. Jane and the team have worked with us on a number of various R&D programmes planning and developing projects. Catalyst® have a good track record. They readily understand the technical aspects of our business and add value in the design and planning of the project. We value their independent expertise, professionalism and commitment."
