Nature, nurture, nourish – that’s our mantra. An eco-system of good. From the land, the farm, the animal, the nutrition, the health, the regeneration back – a full circle of life.
Quality starts with a quality team and it all starts with you – our loyal and valued farm suppliers. At Ovation, we count ourselves lucky to have great partnerships with the country’s finest lamb farmers. Your dedication, passion and integrity to your farm and animals flows right through Ovation, from farm to plate.
Working closely with you to ensure you can grow a constant, sustainable, nutritious food source that our global consumers want, whilst navigating and protecting you from the complexity of the ever-changing world and environmental dynamics is our mission. Our commitment to you never changes.
Together, we can achieve our goal of delivering the finest lamb, best nutrition and good health to the world.
We look forward to the new season together.

Security of Payment
Ovation New Zealand Limited is managed in a prudent manner.
- Working Capital funding is utilised during the season to primarily finance stocks and debtors. When this financing facility is utilised, stringent banking covenants including specific balance sheet ratios must be met.
- All livestock is paid for within 14 days of slaughter and these covenants in turn provide a safeguard to suppliers with regard to all livestock payments.
