BioTech New Zealand


Be the first to review



We connect innovators, investors, regulators, researchers, social entrepreneurs and others

BioTech New Zealand (BioTechNZ) is a purpose driven, membership-funded organisation. Our diverse range of members share a passion for the solutions that biotechnology offers for many of the world’s agricultural, environmental and health problems.

The New Zealand Government is expected to announce the establishment of a Medicinal Cannabis scheme.

It is an exciting time for New Zealand as we establish a new medicinal cannabis industry. The Government has committed to establishing a Medicinal Cannabis Scheme (the Scheme) to improve access to quality medicinal cannabis products through:

  • Enabling the commercial cultivation of medicinal cannabis and the manufacture of medicinal cannabis products in New Zealand.
  • Setting standards for medicinal cannabis products so that medical practitioners can prescribe them with more confidence. A regulatory system, with controls on the cultivation of cannabis and the manufacture and supply of medicinal cannabis products, to support the Scheme.

BioTechNZ has undertaken to hold an event that will bring together diverse groups interested in being part of the medicinal cannabis sector.


Previously known as NZBIO, BIOTech New Zealand (BIOTechNZ) joined the New Zealand Tech Alliance in July 2018. Its vision is to maximise New Zealands’ bioscience + technology capability to create a strong New Zealand Bioeconomy.

We are a purpose driven, membership funded organisation. Our diverse range of members all share a passion for the opportunities that BIOTech can help address for many of the world’s agricultural, environmental and health problems.  Our organisation is governed by an Executive Council.

What we do

We connect innovators, investors, regulators, researchers, social entrepreneurs and interested public.  We also help raise awareness and increase understanding of Biotechnology.

We aim to raise awareness and increase the understanding to enable our nation to embrace the best opportunities biotech offers to us daily, helping us live better, healthier and more productive lives.

We take a practical, but information and evidence-based approach, focussing on harnessing the opportunities and addressing the issues. It draws on the active contributions of all members. This approach is intended to balance the dual aims of:

  1. clearly identifying the real issues to be addressed so actions have maximum effect, and
  2. moving to action rapidly.

We act as a neutral centre of gravity for discussion, debate, policy development and collaboration around biotechnology in New Zealand.
