Welcome to the MER Data Portal, where you can directly access research results from the AERU.
Kia ora tātou katoa.
Since 2012, the AERU has been undertaking original research on international consumers of New Zealand food and beverage products. The research programmes have included:
The AERU publishes results from this research in three forms:
- Written reports for a general audience (see the left side of this page or click here to access these reports).
- Journal articles for an academic audience (see the left side of this page or click here for a list of these articles).
- An online MER Data Portal (click here to access this).
The AERU is grateful to MBIE and to the Our Land and Water National Science Challenge for their support. We also acknowledge funding by Lincoln University to undertake a survey of New Zealand consumers, which provides a useful benchmark for the international studies (see the MER Data Portal).
We are grateful to our research partner, Research First, for helping us to create the MER Data Portal.
