Zespri™ highlights the foundation of its system, the producers of its kiwis, who are also the owners of the company.
The farmers are one of Zespri’s™ most important assets; in addition to being the owners of the company, they export their philosophy and ambition to obtain top-quality kiwis around the world, becoming the best ambassadors of the company’s values.
It is not surprising to find such exceptional cases as the Wright family, whose passion and knowledge about kiwi farming have been passed on from generation to generation; or the Whites, who, thanks to their deep connection with their natural surroundings, produce some top-quality organic kiwis.
Within Zespri’s™ great family, there are also examples of overcoming all the odds, such as that of Te Kaha, a community at risk of social exclusion that has managed to prosper after becoming farmers in the company.
But if there is one point on which they all coincide it is their important commitment to growing the best quality kiwis possible and that this effort is passed on from their fields to the consumers.
The company has its own quality control system. A 12-stage growing system that regulates each phase, from the soil and the growing process, to the arrival of the fruit at the distribution point, and which guarantees that consumers know that what they are buying is healthy, safe, grown sustainably, with unbeatable quality and a high nutritional standard.
This system ensures that Zespri™ is a reference in terms of quality, based on a combination of zeal by the farmers when applying good practices, an excellent product and a documented guarantee to give consumer’s confidence. Something which, together with its nutritional value and delicious flavour, have made Zespri™ kiwis one of the most popular fruits that turn looking after yourself into a real pleasure.
