Acquired the business of Waiotapu Thermal Wonderland Park, which is leased from Ngāti Tahu Ngāti Whaoa. The park is considered to be one of the most colorful and diverse geothermal sightseeing attractions in Aotearoa.


Purchased 14.2 canopy ha kiwifruit orchards in Te Puke. The purchase was in line with the strategic goal of investing into agribusiness as a priority sector. The orchards were assessed to be well sited, well located and well setup.


Purchased 19.5ha of greenfield land in Matipō Avenue, Rotorua. The purchase was in consideration of the growth of the city and the need for residential development.


Co-invested with two other iwi entities to purchase 100 canopy ha of kiwifruit orchards in Te Puke, forming ‘Matai Pacific’. Matai Pacific is one of the largest Māori kiwifruit growers in Aotearoa. The orchards are considered ‘dress standard’ orchards.
