Back in 2000, we started growing 12 chilli varieties in our 2,500 sq metres of temperature controlled greenhouses at Pakowhai in the heart of the "Fruit bowl of New Zealand" as the Hawkes Bay region is known. We position Orcona brand as the premium brand of N.Z. Chilli products, and put the name on 100% pure relishes, sauces and dried chilli products, all made on site, with no added bulking agents, preservatives, artificial colouring or flavourings. We are the only New Zealand producers of Smoked Paprika Flakes, using Manuka wood, a renewable native timber with aromatic properties which produce the unique smoky flavour.

Kiwis are enjoying spicy foods more and more, and we are committed to introducing them to new chilli experiences, and showing how they can use them in their cooking.
