People & Leading Innovation Are At the Heart of Our Success
Greenlea is one of New Zealand’s biggest export meat companies, who continue to pave the way with their cutting-edge technology, people, and focus on sustainability.
Innovation is crucial for the success of any organisation and is at the core of what we do. Over the past 15 years, we have invested heavily in new, revolutionary, and state-of-the-art technology across both plants, honed in on reducing our environmental footprint, and focused on advancing our team of people.
The New Zealand red meat sector is an ever-growing and thriving market internationally and nationally. We continue to make significant upgrades at our Hamilton and Morrinsville plants, which have seen us achieve many New Zealand and world firsts. These upgrades have meant streamlining processes and workloads for our team, making our plants safe working environments and our output more efficient and effective.
2019 saw a renewed focus on our carbon footprint. We overhauled our sustainability framework and redeveloped a new plan, which we are making significant progress with. Our sustainability framework targets three key areas; people and communities, environmental stewardship, and product integrity.
As a family-owned and operated business, we take tremendous pride in our team of people. We value and dedicate time and resources to our team, ensuring they are empowered to achieve their best. We support our staff with professional development and upskilling, which creates endless opportunities within our organisation and means a low staff turnover. People who start at Greenlea often stay at Greenlea.
