Regen Ltd is an innovative company creating world class technology based solutions for the agricultural sector. Regen is led by Bridgit Hawkins, an agricultural business specialist with extensive commercial experience in the rural sector. The flagship product, Re:Gen, is a smart solution to help dairy farmers manage and monitor dairy effluent disposal.
History and Development
Regen is a private, New Zealand based company, created in 2010 to manage and market the Re:Gen Solution.
The Re:Gen system was developed by Wellington Company Harmonic, with support from Dairy NZ, Massey University, Gen-I and the Ministry of Science and Innovation (previously FRST). Bridgit led the rural development programme at Harmonic, and in 2006, conceived a novel concept for effluent management on dairy farms stemming from the environmental monitoring work at Massey University.
The Re:Gen system, was developed in conjunction with Massey University scientists and proved to have a range of benefits for the farm including the scheduling of effluent irrigation and quantifying the changes required to the farm’s effluent system.
Re:Gen was launched in March 2010 following a successful nationwide farm trial and has proven to prevent ponds from overflowing.
Re:Gen won the TUANZ Innovation Award in 2010, for innovation in the Rural market category and received a special commendation at the Hi-Tech Awards 2010.
“We believe Re:Gen is the most advanced effluent monitoring solution on the rural market. Having more information helps you to manage farms more efficiently”, says Bridgit.
