Water for Life 2020 Principal Partners



We are lucky enough to have partnered with some fantastic sponsors for this year’s Conference, companies with the same drive to generate conversation around the future of water in New Zealand. Here we would like to introduce you to our three principal partners and their goals in the irrigation space.


For many agribusinesses, irrigation unlocks the potential to maximising productivity and profitability. With reliable alpine water, new scheme developments, new technology and a focus on enhancing environmental outcomes, improved irrigation “on farm” and beyond becomes a reality. 

ANZ work closely with farmers and the private sector to support the development of irrigation through scheme enhancement and growth that will ultimately enable individual farmers and New Zealand to benefit from the demand for this country’s produce. 

They are a part of a global team who not only connect customers around the world but provide insights to destination markets, giving access to global trends and vital networks.  They understand the challenges and complexities of running a responsible and sustainable agribusiness. Helping New Zealand farmers, businesses and communities to thrive is a priority for ANZ. 

ANZ has been a Principal Sponsor of the New Zealand Irrigation Conference since 2012 and are proud to support IrrigationNZ and the sector that is a pillar for New Zealand’s primary industry and a mainstay for our economy.
