Kate Trufitt

CEO Potatoes New Zealand

Kate has held many roles in the horticulture sector and has a great breadth of experience from plant nursery, growing, postharvest and processing through to the market both domestic and export.  This experience has been gained across a number of horticultural crops.

With a career started in marketing and operational logistics, Kate then turned her skills to human resources, compliance, health & safety and more recently sustainability.

Kate has been involved in Senior Management and Governance roles and believes this gives a perfect balance of experience to take the helm of Potatoes New Zealand.

“I love to work for a sector that is passionate about what it does and has a genuine value-based story”.
