Our Story

When producing premium artisan hemp foods, no organisation is equal.
KANAPU® Hempery™ takes premium New Zealand grown hemp seed and transforms it into pure nutrition. Inspired by and created for our people in Aotearoa New Zealand and beyond, our hemp seed oil and hemp seed flakes are grown on mineral rich silt and peat soil planes at Ludlow Estate in Otane, Waimarama and Central Hawkes Bay, New Zealand.Born over a good old fashioned kiwi cuppa between friends, KANAPU® Hempery™ connects whanau and communities through whenua and kai by an intentional fusion of matauranga Maori and contemporary technology. Our secret ingredient is Maori and Pakeha working together to live out the Treaty of Waitangi, achieve social prosperity for our people and serve our part in the kaitiakitanga of our whenua.We strive to ensure the mauri of the soil remains intact and is even healthier for the next crop that follows. With decades of farming know-how and Hawkes Bay country at our fingertips and the desire to give back to our indigenous lands, premium quality produce is certain. Grown and manufactured by us for you, with care.
