NZ Executives Here To Sell Vegetables
Two top executives of a leading New Zealand organization will arrive here today for a week’s visit in search of markets for fresh frozen vegetables from the rich, sunny plains of South Canterbury.
They are E. Millar, deputy general manager of Dalgety New Zealand, Ltd, and director of its subsidiary D.J. Haigh & Company Ltd, and B.F. Davidson, Haigh’s general manager. While here they will seek outlets for fresh frozen peas and other vegetables produced by Haighs.
Dalgety New Zealand Limited is the largest firm in New Zealand serving the nation’s farming industries and is part of a world group which has extensive operations in Britain, North America and Australia.
The Haigh & Company has expanded spectacularly in the past few years and its frozen products include; peas, green beans, carrots, Brussel sprouts, sweet corn, broad beans, butter beans, French fried potatoes, green broccoli and cauliflowers, and strawberries, raspberries and boysenberries.
The Dalgety organization has many associations with Japan but now, through its subsidiary, it is trying to break new ground in seeking markets for frozen products from the sun-drenched farmlands of New Zealand.
