Company promises

Our strength lies in how we do business, and who we do business with.  When you choose to partner with Fern Ridge, we commit to you: we are straight talking, insightful, dedicated. 


Integrity is the cornerstone of Fern Ridge.  Without keeping our word, we wouldn’t have been able to build this dynamic global company from a conversation between a couple of mates back in 1995.


Premium food value requires traceability.  Our clients want to know where they stand. Our managers need to know what supply is available.  We demand transparency and we honour it too.


Supplying food to the world, and bringing the world’s food to New Zealand can be complex and it can throw curveballs.  Our systems in place mean you can be assured we always deliver a solution.


Fern Ridge believes the connections we make with our clients goes beyond making a quick trade. We dedicate focus and thinking to your business because we love what we do and we want to work with you again and again.
