of true connection
We are Aotearoa’s largest māori owned kaimoana (seafood) and kai ora (ready to eat meals) company, owned by all Iwi. We are an important part of the inter-generational Māori Fisheries Settlement with the Crown. The nature of that settlement means that Māori will always be involved in fisheries. Our assets can never be sold.
Our story is of ‘true connection’. True provenance, true to nature and true for generations. It shows the connection between our people, our product and our place. The interconnectedness shows the responsbility of sustainability sits with all of us. We all have our part to play in reducing our impacts on the environment, be that at work, within our communities and at home.
With one of our core values being kaitiakitanga, we recognise the importance of going above and beyond what is legally required of us. Core to this is our commitment to enabling our people to be kaitiaki across our operations, every day. This is a company-wide kaupapa.
Being true to our values (manaakitanga, whakapapa, whakatipuranga and kaitiakitanga) requires being a responsible, ambitious and innovative company that invests in the right initiatives to underpin our future operations and profitability. As a seafood company Moana New Zealand depends on thriving fish stocks and on harbours for our farming operations. These occur in the natural marine environment that we have minimal control over. What we can control is how we interact with the environment and our associated behaviours. We can also encourage partners to share in our journey to bring about change.
