The Craigmore horticulture portfolio is growing rapidly and we expect to maintain this trajectory over the next few years. Our strategy is to build a diversified portfolio of assets in those sectors for which New Zealand enjoys a competitive advantage, and which generate significant export earnings – such as kiwifruit, apples and grapes.

If you’re keen to join our growing team, we have a range of opportunities available now in Central Hawke’s Bay and Gisborne across our apples, grapes and kiwifruit businesses.

Visit our Careers page to find out what’s on offer.

The horticulture portfolio also includes Coxco, a business growing annual crops of squash and pumpkins for export and a specialist horticulture labour solutions provider.

Craigmore investments in this sector generate new jobs and economic growth in under-developed rural communities. Capital investment in orchard and vineyards infrastructure transforms land previously used for pastoral farming and annual cropping, and goes on to create significant growth in exports for New Zealand.

In 2022 we have completed development of one of New Zealand’s biggest single-site combined orchard and vineyards, Springhill Horticulture. At maturity Springhill will produce 12,000 tonnes of apples and 2,100 tonnes of grapes every year.

We are also on of the country’s largest producer of organic gold kiwifruit, growing 21% of the sectors fruit.
