Key features of the site

Bordering the Makarewa River, we are located near New Zealand’s oat growing region while close to key transport hubs.

We are building on a brownfields site (that’s a site that has already been used for another purpose). This is good for environmental reasons, it lowers the build cost and decreases time to first production.
