The Northland ringleader of the operation that produced the largest amount of methamphetamine ever cooked in New Zealand has been sentenced to 28.5 years' imprisonment.

Brownie Joseph Harding, 40, was sentenced by Justice Simon Moore in the High Court at Whangarei on Friday after having pleaded guilty on June 2, 2016 to 11 charges.

The 11 charges include six of manufacturing methamphetamine, two of conspiring to supply methamphetamine, possession for supply, supplying pseudoephedrine and participating in an organised criminal group.

The charges related to a massive methamphetamine manufacturing and distribution network which he masterminded and directed in the latter part of 2014.
