Trevelyan's Pack and Cool Limited.
Trevelyan’s Pack and Cool Ltd is a family owned business operating from a large, modern, centralised site in Te Puke. We provide packing and coolstorage for kiwifruit and avocados.
Trevelyan's is a post harvest operation that processes kiwifruit and avocados. Services provided are packing, coolstorage, and technical advice to growers. Trevelyan's vision is to create a large centralised facility for the processing of horticultural produce which will provide a world class service to both the grower and exporter.
With four export standard packhouses and 30 coolstores on our 20ha site, optimising outcomes for our growers through quality systems, continuous improvement and innovation is our priority.
Our family-like team has achieved excellent fruit loss and OGR consistently for over 10 years. We are industry leaders in LEAN manufacturing and sustainable business development and have made significant investment into modern cool storage and technology.
In addition to packing and coolstorage, Trevelyan’s offers technical support and managerial services. We value our partnership with growers to produce and pack high tasting, long storing and good quality fruit.
What or how does your business contribute to a more sustainable NZ?
In 2011 Trevelyan's decided to operate its business more sustainably and more responsibly. We wanted to help combat climate change and be more responsible with resources and the natural environment. As a large employer we are in a position of influence in our community and show leadership in our economic, environmental and social performance. With large reductions in carbon emissions and waste to landfill, as well as the introduction of many social initiatives and our community care programme, we have enjoyed a culture change and a greater level of workplace satisfaction.
Staff now take these practices into their home environment as well. As part of a global food supply chain we are excited about the potential to innovate to 'do more while using less' and deliver healthy and safe food products to consumers, while being a profitable business that looks after growers, staff and the community we operate in.
