Greenlea - About Us

Greenlea celebrated our 20th birthday in 2013. In the last two decades the company has grown from humble beginnings to a significant player in the New Zealand meat industry and the supplier of choice for many.

Situated in the high-density farming region, the Waikato, Greenlea Premier Meats boasts a livestock team with a strong-hold of loyal suppliers, procuring in excess of 200,000 prime steer, heifer, manufacturing bull and cow per year. In the 2013 season Greenlea extended that offer to include bobby calf collection as well.

Our innovative plants are recognised around the world for their efficient processes that produce high quality export beef products. Employing the latest boning room technology from Europe and locally developed freezing technology, Greenlea is at the cutting edge of innovation confirming our commitment to grow the business in the coming years.

Our international reputation for reliable service and consistent, high quality product makes us the processor of choice in many markets. Not only in manufacturing beef, but high-quality prime beef table cuts.

And how is all of this achieved? Quite simply it’s the people that make our company so special and our success comes from creating a great team and encouraging them to do great things. We invite you to explore our website and learn more about the great things Greenlea is doing.
