ANZ today announced an assistance package to help farms and other businesses in Northland and the Coromandel manage the aftermath of recent severe flooding.
ANZ Managing Director of Commercial and Agri Mark Hiddleston said a number of farms and businesses are facing serious damage and disruption from the one-in-500-year flood.
“Our thoughts are with the Northland and Coromandel communities as they grapple with this severe weather event,” Mr Hiddleston said.
“Right now farmers and businesses impacted by floodwaters will be focused on repairing damage, ensuring they can maintain production and taking care of themselves and their families.
“We’re offering targeted assistance to take the financial pressure off farmers and business owners so they can focus on what’s urgent the moment, and then working to get their operations back into production and minimise longer-term impacts.”
