Welcome to the Berrysmith Foundation

Feeding the world’s burgeoning population is shaping up to be one of the greatest challenges facing mankind. Coupled with this is increasing scientific evidence that our traditional food production methods are causing havoc on our environment and ecosystems.

There has to be a better way. It has to be possible to produce healthy nutritious food for all of the world’s population - without destroying our environment.

Berrysmith Foundation’s aim is to lead the world in the development of sustainable systems that make growing healthy, nutritious food available for virtually everyone - regardless of land availability, climate, soil conditions, location, natural resources or large capital investment.

We believe that New Zealand has the potential to become a global pioneer in the development of such systems, and in doing so, further enhance our international reputation as the premier food producer globally.

Our Top Goals

Sustainable Growing Systems

Research, test, develop and promote growing systems based on the model of a natural ecosystem that can provide genuine sustainable food production on a worldwide basis.

Breakthrough Research & Development

Be the catalyst for ground breaking and scientifically proven research into sustainable food growing solution.

Raise Awareness & Understanding

...of health, well being and sustainability. Play a leading role in raising the awareness of the benefits healthy, nutritious food can have on our population especially through growing food in ways that have minimal impact on the environment.

Food Production without Compromising

Foster and promote unique intellectual capital that solves long time systemic inefficiencies in traditional growing methods such as cost of production, large scale use of land, depletion of natural resources (e.g. water tables), contamination of surrounding environment from waste by-products and chemicals.

Sustainable Solutions that can be ‘Sealed’

Develop commercially viable (sustainable) food growing systems that make it possible to feed the world regardless of the season, region, climate and availability of natural resources.

Lead the way through Education

Be a powerful voice that leads to a change in awareness, thinking, understanding and behaviour. A new generation of leaders caring for our people and our environment.
