Talley's seafood division 

Talley's Seafood Division is the oldest division of the Talley's Group, being established in 1936 by founder Ivan Peter Talijancich. Talleys Group Limited started operations with one 110 foot steam trawler "Janie Seddon". The fish was processed at Motueka where the Head Office is still located today.

Talleys Group Limited is today a private company owned and operated by two of the son's of Ivan, namely Peter and Michael Talley.

Talleys Group Limited is still the parent company, which over the last 60 years has expanded its operations to include four fish processing plants, two vegetable processing plants and one ice cream plant.
