Our Gifts of the Land & Sea

 

Hua a te whenua me te moana
Our gift from the land and sea

Our connection to the land and sea is at the heart of our identity as Māori. Food and hospitality underpin our way of life.

Sharing food is a traditional way of bringing people together. With open arms we invite you to learn about our ways.

An associated business of Wakatū Incorporation, Kono NZ LP (Kono) is a vertically integrated, family-owned Māori food and beverage producer – an artisan producer, and exporter of award-winning wine, cider, seafood, fruit and natural fruit bars.

Aspiring to be the world’s best indigenous food and beverage provider, Kono has a global consumer focus, particularly in Asia where we have successfully established a wholly-owned trading entity in Shanghai.

Kono is a specialist across all aspects of its operations. From farming and harvesting, to processing and the marketing of seafood, wine, cider, apples, pears, kiwifruit, hops and natural fruit bars.

We farm more than 530 hectares of land and sea and whilst based in the Nelson, Tasman and Marlborough regions of New Zealand, we have a geographic spread of export partners across the world. With an intergenerational perspective, Kono prides itself on living its values of instilling practices our ancestors would recognise and that our children will be proud of.

 

Toku toa, he toa rangatira
My bravery is inherited from
the chiefs who were my forebears
