Owners of 766ha of Māori freehold land in Waikato-Waiariki region, have a long-term aspiration to develop 150 canopy hectares of kiwifruit over 7 years, creating 100 new local jobs for the whānau. 

The Trust will also get to examine nine land blocks for potential conversion from maize to kiwifruit production.
