Kākano - Year One
In your first year of signing up to the Hua Parakore system you can expect to be supported through your journey to becoming Hua Parakore verified through connecting with other Hua Parakore producers and wider Te Waka Kai Ora whānau. You will have access to the Hua Parakore Kai production Plan template - this is the main paperwork that you need to complete as part of your Hua Parakore journey.
You will also be invited to participate in monthly on-line Wānanga. These sessions will support you to complete the Hua Parakore Kai production Plan . As well as be invited into our exclusive Hua Parakore online community where you can share your learnings with other like minded whanau.
All paperwork for year one is due at Matariki. For 2022 this is Friday 24 June - the first public holiday for Matariki in Aotearoa.
“Hua Parakore is an integrity based process about authenticating Māori seeds, Māori grown, Māori verified, Māori marketed and Māori exported. Hua Parakore is a Māori point of difference”
