The " Ministry of Agriculture and
Forestry" is a government department that looks after horticulture and
forestry, safe food, a protected environment, the wise use of the land,
the creation of clean green product, and the economic success of those
who produce it.
For the purpose of importing and
exporting product MAF works in closely with S/lines, Airlines, Port
Authorities, NZ Customs, Freight forwarders and the NZ public.
The regulations laid out by MAF are in
place to protect the country and the people who reside within our fair
shores. It is the responsibility of the importer and exporter to ensure
that they comply with all regulations. It is the responsibility of MAF
to ensure the rules and regulations are adhered to.
We are here to help you, help us. Any
