It would be fair to say we love apples, you could call us obsessed. As New Zealand’s largest apple grower and exporter, our team sets the benchmark for delivering the tastiest apples to the world.

We’ve only ever done apples – it’s what we’re passionate about -but it’s our whanau (family) of 2,000+ people coming from a wide range of backgrounds, with different skills and unique ideas, that set us apart from the rest.

We know that by growing experts, we keep growing perfect apples and delivering the perfect crunch around Aotearoa and the world.
