New Zealand's National Organic Week is the largest annual celebration of all things organic - from food, farming, wine, beauty to textiles - we embrace it all. 

We encourage everyone to get involved - that 

includes producers, retailers, growers, chefs, restaurants and schools. If you'd like some inspiration, keep on scrolling.

New Zealand is enriched with organic producers providing with products as they should be. Delve into their stories and find out why they are so great for the nation.

How will you celebrate?

Farmers & Growers

Retailers

All events and promotions are posted on our events map, allowing the whole nation to see what you're up to and giving them the chance to sign up if they're in the area.


In 2019 we had a staggering 79 events across 9 regions -
help us to be bigger and better next year!

Why celebrate with us?

The world is becoming increasingly conscious about the effects our actions can have on the planet upon which we live. The term 'organic'
is often misunderstood and misconstrued - so we're here to tell you why you should go organic.
