About us

There's a history of goodness at Talley's... and we're not just talking about our nutritious, delicious food. What began as a small local fishing business over 80 years ago is now one of New Zealand's largest food production and supply groups.

Banners About

Proudly taking the best New Zealand seafood, meat, vegetables and dairy products to the world.

New Zealand is world famous for its clean, green image and the consistently high quality of its produce. Here at Talley’s, we have always been at the forefront of that reputation, priding ourselves on delivering healthy, sustainable, premium quality New Zealand primary produce and food products, harvested by our skilled, hardworking team.

The single significant point of difference for all Talley’s products, beyond impeccable quality, is that they are all grown, harvested and processed in New Zealand by us. We also control our distribution from New Zealand. This means every product has a reassuringly traceable provenance back to the clean, natural seas and fields of New Zealand.

Our capabilities

We have two fishing fleets. Small inshore boats that fish the coastlines of New Zealand out of Port Motueka, Nelson, Westport and Timaru, and the large deep sea fleet which also operates out of Port Nelson. We also have our own processing facilities at these ports.

We also grow, harvest and process our own New Zealand Greenshell™ Mussels, which are a unique mussel variety found only in New Zealand’s isolated waters.

Our vegetables are fast, fresh and full of flavour, all grown naturally on both our own and independent farms around New Zealand's South Island. We reliably supply a range of frozen vegetables nationally and internationally, as well as a variety of potato products. We carefully select top quality New Zealand grown potatoes from the mineral-rich soils of the Canterbury Plains, to produce our delicious French fries, wedges and hash browns.

All of our vegetables are 100% New Zealand grown, 100% natural and GE free. They are picked at the optimal point of readiness and snap frozen on the same day to lock in all the nutritional goodness and flavour.

Our Heritage

Founded in 1936 by Ivan Peter Talijancich, what began as a small seafood business has expanded over more than 80 years to become a multi-division, international company. We specialise in seafood (including fish and shellfish), frozen vegetables, potato products (eg. fries, wedges and hash browns), ice cream, meat (AFFCO), and dairy (Open Country Dairy).

Over 80 years since we began catching wild fish in New Zealand's pristine marine wilderness, we may have grown into a multi-division, international company, but we're still family owned and operated. We're still guided by the entrepreneurial spirit and integrity for quality of the man who started it all, our founder - Ivan Talley.
