Ray Sharp, a luminary in the kiwi fruit sector with a rich history on the boards of both Zespri and EastPack, brought invaluable knowledge and extensive experience to the venture.

As Tirofruit flourished, it encountered challenges that were viewed as opportunities for growth. Guided by Ray's leadership, the company navigated the ever-evolving kiwifruit industry landscape with resilience and innovation, strategically focusing on the cultivation of golden kiwifruit due to its increased profitability and high demand.

From the outset, Tirofruit has embraced a "people-first philosophy," placing employees and the local community at the core of its mission. The team is not just a workforce but an integral part of the Tirofruit family, setting the company apart in its ethos.

From inception to continuous cultivation, Tirofruit remains unwavering in its commitment to the land, the community, and its people. As the kiwifruit industry evolves, Tirofruit faces the horizon with optimism and determination. With a dedicated leadership team and a workforce embodying the spirit of family, Tirofruit's legacy is poised to flourish, enriching lives and fostering growth for generations.
