Welcome to the first of our Eat New Zealand presents ConversatioNZ series - The Restaurant is Dead, Long Live the Restaurant.

Tune in as our epic cohort of panellists engage in a fascinating and diverse set of thoughts, opinions and inspiration about the future of hospitality in New Zealand.

Thank you to our panellists: Giulio Sturla (Mapu), Jonny Schwass (Good Company NZ), Damaris Coulter (The Realness World), Sam Gasson (Moiety), Peter Gordon and Alastair Carruthers (@chefpetergordon / Homeland NZ) who were hosted by Angela Clifford of Eat New Zealand.

The next of our ConversatioNZ webinar series will delve into the possibility of a National Food Strategy for New Zealand.

We Don't Need a Ministry of Food, We Need a Citizenry of Food.

What would a citizenry of food look like in New Zealand? What’s our collective plan now?

On Tuesday 23rd June we are bringing together some of the major thought leaders including:

Geoff Kira - Aotearoa Food Policy Network
Dr Jessica Hutchings - Co-Author 'Te Mahi Oneone Hua Parakore’ (Māori Food Sovereignty)
Trish Malcolm - Kore Hiakai (Zero Hunger Collective)
Lindy Nelson - Agri-women’s Development Trust
Emily King - Spira & Food Systems Dialogue in Aotearoa

Join us for the Live Webinar at 4pm on Tuesday 23rd June. Register here.
