Harraways Oats is a household name in New Zealand, operating from its mill in Green Island, Dunedin since 1867. It is a family owned food business, specialising in oats, cereals and flaked grains. It sources the majority of its oats from the local farmers of Otago and Southland. In 2018, Harraways launched a New Zealand first in Oats – the Harraways Oat-activ ® range. It is a convenient, single serve oats range that is fortified with natural plant sterols. This ingredient - alongside the naturally occurring beta-glucan contained in the oats - creates a unique double action in lowering cholesterol absorption to help the hundreds of thousands of Kiwis who struggle with high cholesterol and heart disease. The range is available through all participating New Worlds and Pak N Saves nationally and the range will be profiled at the 2019 Conference.

PHARMAC is the New Zealand government agency that decides which pharmaceuticals to publicly fund in New Zealand. PHARMAC makes choices about District Health Boards' (DHBs) spending on vaccines, community and cancer medicines.
PHARMAC's decisions affect most New Zealanders because almost everyone will be prescribed a medicine or receive a service involving a medical device at some stage.

PHARMAC is committed to the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi. PHARMAC's Māori Responsiveness Strategy, Te Whaioranga, provides a framework for PHARMAC to respond to the particular needs of Māori in relation to pharmaceuticals. PHARMAC is also working on a responsiveness strategy to assist the health of Pacific people.

PHARMAC contributes to the Government's goal of a growing, sustainable economy through being part of the New Zealand health and disability system. We contribute to the health system outcomes: New Zealanders live longer, healthier, more independent lives; and the health system is cost-effective and supports a productive economy.
