1,000 YEARS AGO THE MAORI LANDED IN AOTEAROA/NZ

The Mataatua waka landed in the east cape region of Aotearoa (new Zealand) nearly 1,000 years ago

The "Mataatua" waka was one of the most famous of the waka fleet

In the tradition of the first generation to land on our shores, our kaupapa is to create jobs, generate whanau wealth and help rebuild our economically marginalized rural Mataatua rohe communities. One of our group companies is a landowner Co-Op that targets the planting of one million macadamia trees on whanau owned whenua in our rohe over the next decade. A project that will create a $1B PA sector supported by our groups nursery operations in Waiotahe and in beautiful Whanarua Bay "Out-East".. Without doubt, the best macadamia nursery climate in the entire country.
