The milk me­ter showcases in­no­va­tive Kiwi de­sign through its abil­ity to pro­vide real-time data on milk pro­duc­tion and qual­ity, help­ing farms in­crease longterm prof­itabil­ity.

The gala event was hosted by Plas­tics New Zealand with prin­ci­pal spon­sor Com­pe­tenz. Spe­cial guest was Dr Mary Quin, CEO of Cal­laghan In­no­va­tion.
