Tomoana Industrial Zone

Tomoana has developed as an important food processing and allied industry area.  The industrial zone at Tomoana has become fully committed for this purpose.

The Tomoana Food Industry Zone has been introduced to allow for further expansion of compatible activities, to enable efficient and effective utilisation of existing infrastructure and to encourage the continuation of land based primary production as the zone develops over time. It is expected that Tomoana will further consolidate as a major food processing and allied industry area in Hastings District.

The Tomoana Food Hub is a forward thinking centre for food and beverage processing and related industries located in some of the most fertile land in the world.

It is an industrial business park established to allow food related businesses realise the benefits of clustering and co-location.

The Tomoana Food Hub aims to set a standard for food production activity in New Zealand, where an integrated and well controlled supply chain and close proximity to seasonal produce are linked to compelling brand stories aimed at gaining higher value for our products overseas.

It has some of the best water in the world running through the artesian aquifers under the Heretaunga Plains. The Tomoana Food Hub is the best place for food and beverage businesses to locate their production facility and secure supply to their global customers.
