Let us introduce ourselves...
Ko wai mātou

MPI is helping maximise export opportunities for our primary industries, improve sector productivity, ensure the food we produce is safe, increase sustainable resource use, and protect New Zealand from biological risk.

For many, the most visible part of MPI is the work of our frontline people at New Zealand’s international airports, ports and fisheries.  But there’s much more to us - something you’ll quickly discover when you join our team.  At MPI, you’ll be part of a diverse group that shares a vision of growing and protecting New Zealand.
