Uhh, actually, that's a maybe.  There are some types of "brewer's yeast" that are meant for use as nutritional supplements, and which would emphatically *not* work for bread.  At least in the US. Dunno about NZ....
My favorite Indy movie theatre used to sell popcorn with this brewer's yeast/spices mixture sprinkled on it....mmmmm.....

  Yes, definitely.  You can even make a kind of ersatz ale barm wby 
  starting the yeast with a little malt syrup and raise the bread with that.
