“Te Pakaritanga o te Whanau” (the strength base of Whanau) is the theme underpinning this year’s Te Runanganui o Ngati Porou annual report.

The publication represents a broad range of activities conducted by Te Runanganui o Ngati Porou Group over the last financial year, and includes korero from Te Runanganui o Ngati Porou board & operations, Toitu Ngati Porou, Ngati Porou Hauora & Ngati Porou Holding Company, Pakihiroa Farms and Ngati Porou Seafoods Group. The report also contains full financial statements, with relevant commentaries, for the 2015/2016 year. 


The annual report has been released 9 days ahead of the 2016 Te Runanganui o Ngati Porou Hui a Tau (Annual General Meeting). Ngati Porou whanau and hapu members are encouraged to attend the upcoming hui which will be held on Saturday 26th November at Uepohatu in Ruatoria.
