A huge part of our philosophy at Chatham Island Food Co. is community. Family is a vital part of Island life and so are the surrounding lands and seas that support our livelihoods. This was a big driver in the formation of the Chatham Island Food Co. – to celebrate our islands produce and support local community, the very people who catch, pack and deliver our produce every week.
All value is added right here on the island by members of the community. We work directly with independent fishermen who run their own family businesses. Chatham Island Food Co. continues to look at options to further value add produce on the Island and help create a positive future for generations to come.
