New Zealand’s Premier Produce Company

Seeka has always been a company that’s done things differently. In fact their journey started in 1980 in the small rural township of Te Puke when a group of kiwifruit orchardists saw an opportunity to generate better returns from their kiwifruit.

By following their vision, Seeka has grown to become the largest producer of kiwifruit in New Zealand and Australia, and a major provider of supply chain services that’s delivers the very best produce to an ever-growing range of global consumers.

For more than 35 years, by selecting excellence Seeka has been helping more growers, deliver more produce to more markets.


Pirihima Tuhono Whenua
Tūhono Whenua Horticulture is a Kaupapa Maori driven programme designed to maximise our yields from the whenua, Papatuanuku, and Ranginui (our Sky Father). Working within the realms of good stewardship (Kaitiakitanga) for the heath and prosperity of generations to come.


Pirihima Teawanui Huka Pack
Te Awanui Huka Pak Limited (Te Awanui) is a 100% Maori owned company founded in 1984 by a collection of Maori trusts. At the time, the founders were all kiwifruit growers looking to expand their footprint across the horticultural value chain and so purchased a Packhouse in Mount Maunganui.

In 1984 Te Awanui packed approximately 300,000 trays, in 2009 that number had grown to 6 million.

In December 2009, Te Awanui sold its interests to Seeka Industries Limited (Seeka) and on completion of the transaction took a 17% stake in Seeka and retained its land holdings.

Now in 2017, Te Awanui currently has total investments in excess of $20m consisting primarily of commercial property and shares in publicly listed Seeka Ltd.
