On 1 July 2010, the New Zealand Food Safety Authority (NZFSA) and the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MAF) were amalgamated. On 1 July 2011, the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry and the Ministry of Fisheries merged to create a single agency spanning the whole of the primary sector. The new ministry became the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) on 30 April 2012. This is an exciting time to be joining the new organisation which covers animals, plants, food and related sectors, and their contribution to New Zealand's economy and social well-being.
