This section contains links to business-realted organisations in the Tasman and Nelson regions.

While fruit growing, farming, fishing and forestry continue to be the lifeblood of the Tasman District, there are many other opportunities for businesses to be successful. Tasman has a growing viticulture sector and is New Zealand's main hop growing area. With stunning rivers, mountains, beaches and native bush, tourism also provides a major boost to traditional agricultural activities.
