In these challenging times, it has been heartening to see how New Zealanders have pulled together. As one of the few remaining 100% New Zealand-owned seed businesses, Luisetti Seeds is proud to be part of Team New Zealand.
It seems fitting that May 14 marked the 25th anniversary of the yachting Team New Zealand’s maiden America’s Cup win and once again, a team of now 5 million people have worked together, in this case to flatten the COVID-19 curve.
Over the past 25 years, Luisetti Seeds has grown exponentially and we now employ 45 people operating out of two Canterbury sites.
In recent weeks we have been pleased to be able to employ three people made redundant by the decimated airline industry and there will likely be more employment opportunities in the near future.
Luisetti Seeds is unique in that all the cereal cultivars we sell are bred in NZ and while we produce and sell seeds in NZ to Kiwi farmers, we also export seeds grown by our farmers to markets throughout the world.
We are very much owned and operated by New Zealanders and are proud to not just sell seeds, but offer a wealth of home-grown experience and knowledge to our farmer clients.
He waka eke noa: We are all in this together.
