Announced on 3 April 2023
Biolchim’s Protamin fertiliser range
Our nominators said: “The way this replaces synthetic nitrogen has a sustainable effect from a farming point of view. It has a low environmental impact and high nutritional efficiency due to the modulated release of nitrogen and other essential nutrients.”
Linden Leaves Miraculous Facial Oil
Our nominators said: “It’s natural, cruelty free, vegan and made in NZ. Smooths the skin and nourishes, minimising the appearance of lines and too much time in the elements.”
Oi Organic hygiene products
Our nominators said: “Only tampons, pads & liners which are 100% biodegradable, GOTS & BioGro certified, no plastics, toxins or chemicals. All biodegradable packaging with vegetable inks. Wholly NZ owned.”
Penergetic B-Soil Improvement
Our nominators said: “These are IFOAM & NZ BioGro certified (6298), standalone products. They offer new tools to farming communities to break the dependence on synthetics. They stimulate existing biological organisms, which we know are responsible for most of the natural processes & cycles supporting agriculture.”
