The Canterbury Hub encompasses the West Coast, Canterbury, Southern Marlborough, Northern Otago and Chatham Island. Within ApiNZ, we are the largest hub geographically and membership wise.  Many of our members live in relatively isolated areas, and this, combined with the geographic size of our hub, poses logistical challenges in trying to accommodate the interests of all our members.

The Canterbury Hub has amazing diversity, skills and experience in all three of the honey industry sectors (commercial, market and non-commercial sectors).

The Canterbury Hub runs regular entertaining and informative events which are well attended.
