NEW ZEALAND ARABLE FARMERS
Our grower suppliers are an integral part of the Pure Oil NZ business. We acknowledge of the importance of this relationship by the stated core value: “Grower Suppliers are part of our Team”.
Since 2012 we have developed long lasting partnerships with our Grower Base, where together we have developed the New Zealand oilseed industry. Our approach to working with Growers is that we are here for the long-term, we provide continued grower support and timely advice, and we learn from one another to improve outcomes for the industry.
The first contract crop of Pure Oil NZ was standard oilseed rape (like canola), we then shifted focus to high oleic rapeseed, successfully improving yields and gross margin returns for Growers. We started growing high oleic sunflowers in 2017 and have successfully implemented this crop as an arable option. We are now developing the growing and markets for GE Free soyabeans.
