Meat is part of our nation’s DNA, and for years Godzone grew fat selling meat to the rest of the world. But the future of food seems far from being on the farm.  

Fake meat, clean meat, synthetic meat. Call it what you will – but this new food technology is already a multi-billion dollar industry attracting big players like Bill Gates and Sir Richard Branson and massive food companies such as Nestle.

With a new menu to choose from, what does it mean for New Zealand ?

Australia is detaining, cuffing and deporting more New Zealanders than any other group. More than 1300 Kiwis have been kicked out in the past three years  while New Zealand has ejected just nine Australians.

Lawyers expect up to 15,000 New Zealanders could be deported in the next 10 years. It’s riling Kiwis and straining relations across The Ditch. Is this how we treat an old mate?
