about us

NZNF Information

The New Zealand Nutrition Foundation is a professional, non-profit organisation whose members believe all New Zealanders should have access to accurate information to enable them to make informed choices about food and the effect it has on their health. We help New Zealanders make these choices by providing a balanced viewpoint on important issues around food, nutrition and health.


The New Zealand Nutrition Foundation has individual and corporate members. One of our strengths lies in our members’ commitment and their support of the Foundation’s mission and goals.

Healthy Ageing

The committee, a special interest group of the Foundation, was initially established in 2004, to champion the cause for improving the quality of life of older New Zealanders, through nutrition and physical activity.
