Food & Fibre Youth Network

Enabling young people to add their voice

The Food and Fibre Youth Network (FFYN) enables young people in the primary sector to add their voice to shaping the future of our food and fibre sector.

NZ Young Farmers, in collaboration with the Ministry for Primary Industries, Beef and Lamb NZ, DairyNZ and AGMARDT launched the network, creating an opportunity for young representatives across the food and fibre sector to raise industry issues and provide input into critical decisions about the sector’s future.
