Takitimu Seafoods takes its name from the Takitimu Waka.
Takitimu Seafoods takes its name from the Takitimu Waka which started its voyage in South East Asia, before navigating all the way across the Pacific, finally travelling from the top of New Zealand down to the Takitimu Ranges in the South Island.
During its great migration, voyagers from Takitimu would leave the waka and settle in various newly discovered lands. These tangata whenua would go on to form the basis of many iwi, of which Takitimu Seafood’s owners – Ngati Kahungunu - are one. With that great seafaring history and whakapapa, Takitimu Seafoods now prides itself of being New Zealand’s most innovative seafood company - serving the best kaimoana to ourselves and to the world.
