Māori and future food technologies

Jessica Hutchings, Katrina Taupo and Alex Barnes

Te Wāhanga has been working with the Institute of Environmental Science and Research Ltd (ESR) on a project about future food technologies and Māori well-being. It explored the question of how can dialogue with diverse Māori communities support sustainable decision-making on future food technologies such as biotechnology, nanotechnology, sustainable agriculture and functional foods. Working with kaupapa Māori principles, we interviewed Māori scientists, government workers and whānau.

We produced a four page brochure on the findings from the project (which can be downloaded below). This research is part of a wider project called Coming to the table, Sustainable decision-making for future food technologies.
