Managing Privacy with Silver Fern Farms

Founded in 1948, Silver Fern Farms is New Zealand’s leading processor, marketer and exporter of premium quality red meat, producing 30% of all New Zealand lamb, beef and venison. 

As a company with over 7,000 employees and 16,000 farms nationwide, Silver Fern Farms deals with large volumes of personal information on a daily basis. Following the 2020 Privacy Act coming into force, they recognised a need to introduce a tool that supported their practice around privacy breaches, protecting their customers, suppliers and staff and complying with the requirements of the act.

We worked with the team to design a robust and user-friendly tool that allows any staff member to report suspected or actual privacy breaches. With an existing Microsoft365 platform, Microsoft Power Apps was the logical choice for this solution, allowing rapid custom development.

Project highlights include: 

  • Leveraging M365 to build a user-friendly, secure tool
  • Privacy risks identified and managed centrally
  • Improved monitoring
