Buy Pure has successfully secured a contract to manage operations for New Zealand’s peak organic sector body, Organics Aotearoa New Zealand (OANZ).

Brendan, who has been acting as OANZ’s Executive Chair for the last three years will now step into the Chief Executive role,  assisted by an Interim Board led  by past Zespri Chair and organic kiwifruit grower, Doug Voss. The team will focus on the April launch of the 2016 Market Report; development of regulation for  the use of the term “organic” in New Zealand and  a common national standard; and constitutionally restructuring the organisation to accommodate growing interest.
