Key points about the park

Who is
the park for?

You might be an existing business looking to expand closer to the source of your raw materials or a new start-up looking at using by-products from horticulture production or making alternative building products. We welcome and support businesses of all sizes.

Businesses that use the raw materials grown on the Park or across the region. From processing horticultural crops to extracting oils, bioactives and ingredients from the wide variety of native and exotic plants the region's sub-tropical climate can grow. Amongst other things, our businesses are creating food products, natural skin care products, and producing ingredients for nutraceuticals. They are also developing alternative or engineered building products.

We have businesses using the waste streams of others at the Park to reduce landfill waste and to create higher value products from the by-products of other manufacturing.

We are fostering a collaborative environment where there are mutual benefits for businesses that want to improve their quadruple bottome line and meet sustainable development goals that are attractive to impact investors.

Providing and supporting a work-ready workforce and on site and on-the-job training of the workforce to meet the skills that is bespoke for each business means that businesses have the skills they need and are supporting the local community into employment.

The Innovation Centre provides laboratory spaces to support small scale production, testing and research and development.

We are seeking businesses that have a symbiotic relationship to each other so that the benefits of the Park are increased through sharing services, logistics, and potentially R&D. Located in a region with a large number of Māori landholdings, there is potential to build your business and increase the benefits to tangata whenua through sharing knowledge and increasing their land utilisation.
