The Future Food Network gives students who are still involved in study the opportunity to establish their own networks with people working in various roles across the food production chain. This includes anyone from farmers and stock managers to national and international meat processing companies, trade envoys, sales and marketing managers, scientists, engineers, and related industry organisations.

The purpose of the programme is to support students to develop an industry network prior to leaving their education or training institution. As a result the aim is to increase the number of motivated and high achieving graduates entering careers within the primary industries. This programme is fully funded by the Red Meat Profit Partnership in conjunction with New Zealand Young Farmers.
