This paper summarises the findings from case studies of four significant New Zealand industries: Dairy (both farming and processing), Health technology (HealthTech), Horticulture (with a focus on kiwifruit and wine) and Software products and services (Software).

The four case studies have identified various opportunities for improving productivity, some industry-specific and some generic.

The work is an important part of the evidence base for the Commission’s inquiry into New Zealand's frontier firms. The Commission’s policy recommendations for addressing opportunities for improving productivity are in the frontier firms inquiry report here.
