Our Story

Based in Kaitaia in the Far North of New Zealand, CBEC was formed in 1989 in response to the impacts of New Zealand’s mid 1980s economic reforms. The founding team wanted to create environmentally sustainable businesses and practises that provided training and employment for local people with the profits going back into the community.
