The People

Pypers Produce Ltd was originally known as NA & RM Pyper started by Nelson & Rosanne Pyper. They were growing and marketing produce for over 40 years and the Branxholme plant had been their base for operations since 1972. At the very beginning Nelson use to plant around 20 acres of potatoes. During that time the Pyper family had become very well known for producing a superior Southland grown product.

They achieved national recognition with the Roger Davies Award for Innovation and “Turning dreams into reality”. Alison Holst New Zealand’s most successful food show host and writer says “Pyper’s of Southland produce the best tasting potatoes in New Zealand”.

In 2007 Nelson, seeing dedication, loyalty and potential in two of his workers who he had employed for many years, gave Brent Lamb and Brendan Hamilton the opportunity to purchase Pyper’s Produce Ltd. Nelson is still involved in the Company giving and sharing his knowledge and advice.
