The Turners & Growers story began more than 100 years ago when English Immigrants Edward Turner and his wife Maude settled in the Auckland area.
Edward started a business as a produce wholesaler in the city, and was later joined by each of his 9 sons in his flourishing business E. Turner and Sons.
In 1921 an amalgamation was formed between the Turner Family business and the local fruit growers cooperative. Hence the new name of the company, Turners and Growers.
Throughout the following generations the company grew to become the most important export, import and wholesale group in New Zealand Horticulture.
Today the company continues the tradition of integrity, reliability and forward thinking which founded the original family enterprise.
New Zealand is blessed with fertile soils and highly skilled produce growers. The low incident of pests and diseases in this country means our growers can minimise the use of harmful sprays.
We are comitted to protecting our clean green environment... and are one of the few contries in the world to uphold a nuclear-free policy.
The King Kiwi brand, marketed internationally by Turners & Growers Exports, is a product borne of this unspoiled land.
