'Today we are one of the country’s most innovative and successful packhouses, packing over 2 million tray equivalents of locally grown fruit a year.'


 

Starting in a small packhouse on Geoff & Nicky Oliver's orchard in Paengaroa......

Kiwi Produce was established in 1986 as a specialist kiwifruit packhouse, prepacker and distributor.

After more than 14 extensions, today we are one of the country’s most innovative and successful packhouses, packing over 2 million tray equivalents of locally grown fruit a year and employing 60 staff at the peak of the season.

Today, we have 6 fully monitored coolstores on the same site as our packhouse, which boasts the latest sophisticated methods and machinery for grading, sorting, labelling and packing.

A big part of our growth has been our team’s ability to handle a diverse range of produce, work closely with our regular customers and invest in new packhouse equipment and technology.

Over the past three years, Kiwi Produce has developed a range of new kiwifruit products, including Kiwilicious Dried Kiwifruit and Kiwilicious IQF (Individually Quick Frozen) Kiwifruit.
