The RD8 Fresh Produce Story

RD8 is a successful fresh produce export company utilising the most efficient supply chain structure to send the highest quality New Zealand fruit to overseas buyers.We offer our suppliers and customers the chance to work closely with the people driving our business on a day-to-day basis. It’s this connected point of difference, along with a strong background in produce knowledge, innovation, logistics, supply chain management and a real understanding of our customers’ and suppliers’ needs, that sets us apart.


We partner exclusively with leading New Zealand growers producing the highest quality fruit from regions including Auckland, Central Otago, Nelson, Hawkes Bay, Waikato, Northland and Gisborne. The reputation RD8 Fresh Produce has built enables our customers to trust that when they order from us, they will get exactly what they want each and every time, on time, and to the highest possible standards.

Rather than sitting in an office all day, our staff spend time at the orchards and fruit-packing houses that we work alongside. This enables us to consistently deliver the highest quality fresh produce grown in New Zealand. 


Our customers are our focus, and because of our commitment to exclusivity, they know that when they place an order with us, they won’t see their competitors selling the same fruit. RD8 Fresh Produce exports to countries and continents including Australia, China, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, Malaysia, Cambodia, Chinese Taipei (Taiwan), South Korea, India, Sri Lanka, Hong Kong, the Philippines, the United Kingdom, Europe, Russia, the Middle East, United States and Canada.

Our philosophy – Pure Source 

What is Pure Source?


It can equally be explained as a way of doing business and as a commitment to excellence.


Craig Hall coined the term Pure Source to describe the pure, unspoiled environment in which the fruit RD8 Fresh Produce exports overseas is grown. Fresh water and soil leads to outstanding tree health and the tastiest fruit available. Pure Source speaks to a combination of the clean, green image for which New Zealand is so well known and the country’s unique climate and geography.

New Zealand has some of the world’s highest food safety standards. RD8 Fresh Produce are dedicated to maintaining those standards. The fruit we export to our valued overseas customers is only the purest product nurtured and sustained by the land in this beautiful part of the world that we call home.
