Kaiaponi’s story starts in 1907, when the land was used for cropping. The land has since been used to grow many fruits and vegetables including apricots, avocados, beans, grapes, pears, squash and tomatoes. Today Kaiaponi is a leading grower of apples, kiwifruit and feijoas.
Kaiaponi is a privately-owned business based on family values. The importance of innovation and sustainable growth has always been central to our ethos. This has been demonstrated in the past by our early investment in gold kiwifruit, high yielding apple varieties, designated grower trial blocks and our continual investment in post-harvest technology.
Today, we grow the best varieties to meet market demand and have the best technology to pack and distribute your fruit.
Even with our strengths we’re not resting on our laurels. Kaiaponi will continually evolve, redevelop and build the right partnerships to continue our growth into the future.
Selecting the right people to be part of our team is just as important as selecting the right varieties to grow on our orchards and the right growers to partner with.
We have great confidence in our team delivering the best fruit and service to those who we work with.
We look forward to introducing them in the coming months.
