About us

Here you’ll find details about Zespri, including our purpose and values, as well as financial information and important updates.

About us

Zespri is 100 percent owned by current and former kiwifruit growers and has a global team of 850 based in Mount Maunganui and throughout Asia, Europe and the Americas.

Our purpose is to help people, communities and the environment thrive through the goodness of kiwifruit, and we work with 2,800 growers in New Zealand and 1,500 growers offshore to provide consumers with fresh, healthy and great-tasting Zespri Green, RubyRed™ and SunGold Kiwifruit.

In 2022/23, we supplied 183.5 million trays of kiwifruit to consumers in more than 50 markets, and recorded global operating revenue of NZ$4.22 billion.

Zespri is committed to sustainability, with areas of improvement identified right through the supply chain, including our pledge that by 2025 we’ll use 100 percent reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging, do more to help the environment, and work with our partners to be carbon positive by 2035.

Our purpose and values

Zespri’s purpose is to help people, communities and the environment around the world thrive through the goodness of kiwifruit. We have three core values that should guide all of us in the way we work together.
