  • About Us

    Originally established by the NZ Forest Service in 1966, Proseed was developed into a separate business by the NZ Forestry Corporation in 1987. It was then purchased by Ngāi Tahu in 2001. It is managed by a permanent staff of six, which grows to include around 80 seasonal workers during the peak pollination processes between June to the end of October.

    The company’s clonal seed orchard site, located at Amberley, was chosen specifically for its fertile soils and ideal growing climate.
