More About Us
Kaiaponi’s story started in 1907, when the land was used for cropping. The land has since grown many fruits and vegetables including apricots, avocados, beans, grapes, pears, squash and tomatoes. Today Kaiaponi is a leading grower of apples, citrus, feijoas and kiwifruit.

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 green and efficient post-harvest technology.

Today, we grow the best varieties to meet market demand and have the best technology to pack and distribute our own and our grower suppliers fruit.

Even with our strengths we’re not resting on our laurels. We will continually evolve, invest, redevelop and strengthen the right partnerships to continue our growth into the future.

Come Grow with us…

The use of water on our orchard is done so with care. As part of water preservation we are progressing a number of initiatives including focused irrigation, aquifer recharge trial support and water storage dams.

We are committed to treating our environment gently and in a balanced approach. We live by the land so it’s important we appreciate the importance of doing things right.

Our coolstore expansions over the last 10 years have been built using only natural refrigerants and technology which will minimise our energy consumption.
