Our Trust is located on the Matapihi peninsular,
Tauranga, New Zealand.

Our core business is horticulture. We are an industry leader in the production and harvesting of kiwifruit.

Our Trust

Ngai Tukairangi Trust emerged from the threat of urbanisation on the Matapihi peninsula, with a clear vision to retain and develop the land to better meet the needs of our people.
