Nāti Kai

Developing kai resiliency and sovereignty in Te Tairāwhiti


Dear Whanau,

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the closure of Nati Kai, our whanau community-focused vegetable and fruit box initiative. After careful consideration and assessment of various factors, we regret to inform you that our last delivery will be on Wednesday, 8th May 2024. The decision was not taken lightly, but rather due to the associated increasing costs.

We take this opportunity to express our deepest gratitude to our stakeholders who have been a part of our journey.

To our loyal customers, your support and patronage has been invaluable. We are truly grateful for your commitment to local, sustainable healthy food systems and for allowing us to serve you.

Our heartfelt thanks goes out to the Tairawhiti Growers Collective and our other growers and suppliers who have been instrumental in supplying fresh, locally sourced produce to our whanau over this time. Your passion and dedication to local kai resiliency is inspirational.

We remain hopeful that the spirit of whanau, community and sustainability that defined our original initiative will continue to thrive in other forms and once again, we thank you for your support and understanding during this difficult time.

If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

Nga mihi mahana,

Paula, Turuhira, Terendak, Mateawa & Panapa

What is Nāti Kai?

Nāti Kai is a whānau centric initiative locally driven by Tairāwhiti Growers Collective and Hikurangi Enterprises, which aims to foster kai resilience and sovereignty. This endeavor seeks to provide a high-quality box of vegetables and/or fruit for whānau and communities between Wharekahika (Hicks Bay) to Turanga (Gisborne).

Whānau can access Nāti Kai boxes through subscription plans which are available on a weekly or fortnightly basis, with the convenience of delivery. Additionally, there's a sample box option for those interested in trying before committing to a subscription.
