In 1936, Ivan Peter Talijancich established a small seafood business in the town of Motueka, at the top of New Zealand’s South Island.
Today the Talley’s Group is a multi-division, international company. It is still owned and operated by the Talley family, with second and third generation family members taking an active part in its operation.
The operations of Talley's Group Limited span the country and are managed under four divisions: Seafood, Vegetables, Dairy and Meat.
The original parent company, Talley’s Fisheries Ltd, has expanded to encompass:
- A fishing and seafood division with numerous freezer and fresh fish trawlers, and specialised fish and shellfish processing plants.
- A frozen vegetable division.
- A dairy division, which includes an ice cream business and a significant shareholding in Open Country dairy Limited.
- A meat division, operating as AFFCO Holdings Limited.
