About Us


We are fortunate in New Zealand to have a wonderful climate, fertile soils and an abundance of pure water. These factors, along with the continuous innovation and ingenuity of New Zealand growers, make our fresh produce first class.
 

History

Freshco, founded in 1989, as an Auckland-based export business has steadily grown to include orchards, packing houses, coolstores and offices in key growing locations through New Zealand.
 
In Hawke's Bay, our fruit is consolidated with other quality growers, to provide significant volumes all of which must comply with the stringent quality and safety requirements of increasingly sophisticated customers’ world wide.
 
We have formed a joint venture with key apple growers in Nelson, establishing Freshco Nelson Limited in 2004. This company incorporates all activities of apple production which includes, harvesting, packing, coolstorage, shipping and marketing, in the region and is part owned by the growers which it serves.
 
 Similarly, a joint venture to market squash (kabocha pumpkins) was established with key squash growers in 2004 from Gisborne and Hawkes Bay to manage the business of export, to Japan and Korea. The business exports over 15,000 tonnes annually.
 
We are proud also to represent our friends at the Tendertips Asparagus Company and Leaning Rock Cherries. We have been the sole marketer of the product from these outstanding growers, for over 20 years.

 
These are New Zealand’s best growers.
