Sarah Perriam has a passion for sharing the stories of New Zealand’s premium food & beverage producers environmental, animal welfare and global trade business practices are often mis-understood by the public.
Sarah previously co-hosted ‘Rural Exchange’ on Magic Talk and her Friday ‘rural’ segment with Duncan Garner on the AM Show as a platform to regularly talk about the big issues in agri-business. She is now working on new media endeavours in the agri-food space, including the launch of her new podcast – naked.hungry sober – targeted at curious consumers and passion producers.
In 2018, she hosted the 50th FMG Young Farmer of the Year live-broadcast on Newshub.co.nz and was nominated as a finalist in the Westpac Women of Influence.
She has recently been involved as a speaker & MC at many events around New Zealand, including the 2019 Boma Grow Summit, bringing professional pre-production management and time-management at the event with her years as a producer and event manager.
Sarah hopes that with a public trend towards more critical thinking and thought lead journalism the primary sector is on the right track to changing the perception of farmers to passionate food producers.
