1. Growers are our heart and soul

2. We’re dedicated to flavour, quality and freshness
At Zespri™, our kiwifruits are made in partnership with Mother Nature. That’s why we make sure we hold ourselves to the highest standards to create a true difference in the quality of our fruit. Every step of the process is carefully managed – from cutting edge techniques in the orchards through to the end of the supply chain. The result? Fresh kiwifruit that are delivered in perfect condition – every time.
3. The environment is always on our mind
We know that as far as sustainability is concerned, there is always more that companies can be doing. Our consumers expect this of us, as we do of ourselves. That’s why we are committed to bold sustainability targets.
One of our current goals:
Zespri™ packaging will be 100% recyclable, reusable or compostable by 2025.
