Sustainability

MEG's growers grow great apples. The generational philosophy that unpins our growers' ethics can only work if they grow sustainably, looking after the environment and their community. MEG growers work hard to be at the forefront of innovation in the industry and go that extra mile to create a friendly work-place for their employees. 

Integrated Fruit Production

All of MEG's growers use the world renowned New Zealand Apples and Pears, Integrated Fruit Production system, and the  Apple Futures system,  with several of the growers being part of the trial group way back in the 1980's. 

MEG growers take pride in their pest and disease management systems, working with the environment for the best outcome. 

Sustainability & The Future

Our fruit growers hold common values with regards to the importance of looking after soil, tree health, water resource, and the wider environment. 

We work with our local, but globally recognised, scientists to find the best ways to produce fruit in our growing environment. We work hard to look after our biological control agents and only react to pest and disease triggers after careful monitoring. 


At MEG, we're always looking for ways to improve production while adhering to our world-renown sustainability practices and  production systems. Our orchards are constantly evolving using innovation suited to our philosophy and our environment.  There are some exciting things in store for MEG in the not too distant future so watch this space!
