What We Do For You
Simple mandate: enhance our partners' brands and create loyal advocates.
For our grower suppliers, we drive value by creating consumer demand for merino brands at retail. Growers then realise this value through choices for optimising the value of their sheep products.
For our brand partners, we operate as a business extension, giving greater depth to their business with expertise specific to their brand. We want to make them look good.
At the heart of what we do are our people. Good ones. NZM is a small but nimble team with great depth of expertise in broad areas, bringing together the credible and the incredible.
Growers' merino to the world
Want to join us in the transformation of the sheep industry from faceless commodities to premium brands globally? If you're a grower wondering how, contact your area manager today.
Enjoy the certainty and confidence that comes from guaranteed supply and price. Traditional wool is traded as a commodity at auction. With commodities come huge boom bust price fluctuations.
NZM's model offers more sustainable solutions including direct fibre supply contracts based on fair prices that both the grower and retail brand can work with. This provides price certainty, guarantee of supply, enhanced quality through 'fit-for-purpose' consignments, and traceability.
Your value chain. Sorted?
We partner with world renowned companies that specialise in what they do; for example the scouring and top making, spinning, knitting, weaving, or garment manufacture of ZQ Merino fibre. Contact us today if you would like us to recommend a partner company for you.
Working with other smart people puts fire in our bellies and grows good ideas into meaningful business. From Stanford University, to Interbrand, to Silver Fern Farms, our brand partners, to government, we get a kick out of partnering with the world's thought leaders.

Got sheep? We need them. We're on a mission to create the smartest, most sustainable and financially robust primary sector industry. By improving the economics of fine sheep farming we can ensure the continued supply of fibre for growing brand partners. Growers, research institutes and leading scientists are applying their considerable expertise to the ways in which sheep numbers can be expanded. If you have any queries or would like to find out more contact Nick Hamilton.
Looking after our land is looking after our future. We take it seriously with a range of projects that benchmark, validate or improve our environmental systems and ensure that sheep farming is harmonious with the natural cycle.
