From Humble Beginnings...
Formed in 1915, and formerly known as the Danish Mineral Research Company, Nutritech was the first company to make and sell mineral mixes to New Zealand farmers. The company soon became known for innovation and quality products that improved animal health, prevented deficiencies and improved productivity.
Today with factories in Christchurch and Auckland, a sales team covering the entire country and a direct to customer delivery network, Nutritech has come a long way but our vision is still the same: To promote top animal health, to increase efficiency and to optimise production. Nutritech focuses on major mineral and trace element supplements combined with sound nutrition and management practices. As well as products, we provide consultancy services and technical advice to many successful farm and agri-businesses in New Zealand and Australia.
Our products are based on sound, modern nutrition and science. They are targeted toward removing nutritional limitations and bottlenecks. They deliver correct, balanced doses to animals at critical times in the annual production cycle. Our products are high specification, and deliver real value for money when it comes to cost per dose. We are all getting busier with less time and at Nutritech we recognise this – our products are convenient and easy to use. They are often complete products that contain all that an animal needs at a certain time or stage in the life/production cycle. We have taken into account the diverse range of conditions, systems, performance and pastures across NZ – and have tailored products to specific areas of the country. Our local Area Managers are practical farming people – they often have managed farms and animals themselves. They have their own personal experience and knowledge to call on plus the extensive resources of the Nutritech nutritional team, to offer advice, products and services to optimise animal performance. Our locally-based team of Area Managers cover New Zealand– each one knowing their local farm conditions, systems and needs – then matching products to each farm situation with the assistance of DietCheck® nutrition software. Our local team can offer unparalleled service levels for support, product availability and delivery.
Our products are manufactured in our Auckland and Christchurch factories to the highest standards, operating to ISO9001-2000 Quality Assurance standards and industry Codes of Practice, which are regularly audited by national bodies.
