The New Zealand Limestone Producers Association (NZLPA) represents the interests of member companies responsible for extracting limestone in NZ, and producing industrial/agricultural lime for use in a wide variety of diverse downstream applications. The NZLPA is a constituent body of the Aggregate and Quarry Association (AQA), represented by a limestone producer’s committee. One of our key aims is to help broaden the public’s knowledge of the benefits of limestone, as well as representing the interests of the industry in technical, promotional, environmental and general matters.
