Food New Zealand was launched in 2000, building on the foundations established by New Zealand Food Journal, formerly The Food Technologist, (Journal of the New Zealand Institute of Food Science and Technology (NZIFST)) and Dairy
Technology, the publication of the Dairy Industry Association of New Zealand (DIANZ) which were discontinued as independent magazines in 2000.
After 20 years as a print publication, the magazine is now online-only. The availability of stable online platforms, with the plus of reducing the magazine’s environmental footprint and extending its reach and measureability for advertisers is a win-win.
