Zespri is organised in a rather distinctive way. The Zespri group (Zespri Group Limited) is owned by some 2,700 New Zealand kiwifruit farmers who take care of the cultivation of Zespri Kiwifruit wholly in line with our quality system. The sale and distribution of their fruit, including the marketing, is coordinated by Zespri International Limited from the head office in Mount Maunganui (New Zealand).
SO SMALL, YET SO PACKED WITH NUTRIENTS. A kiwi a day helps you meet your recommended daily nutrient intake.
Poor diet, dehydration and inadequate exercise are common causes of digestive problems worldwide. Zespri™ kiwifruit are a good source of fibre. Actinidin can help improve digestive health by breaking down proteins and improving functions at both the gastric and intestinal levels. This natural digestive enzyme occurs only in kiwifruit, especially in the green variety!
High in VITAMIN C
Vitamin C is essential for our good health, but our bodies can’t produce it naturally, so we have to get it from our daily diet. Zespri™ kiwifruit are an excellent source of vitamin C.
LOW GLYCEMIC INDEX
Kiwifruit fibre is unusually good because it swells and thickens in the stomach which makes uptake of sugars into the bloodstream steadier.
FULL OF ANTIOXIDANTS
Our SunGold™ kiwifruit are a good source of Vitamin E and Vitamin C and these are at the front line of protecting the body against harmful pathogens.
Load up on POTASSIUM
Potassium maintains fluid and electrolyte balance, which is why bananas are often associated with exercise. A serving of Zespri™ SunGold™ contains as much potassium as a medium banana.
GOOD SOURCE OF FOLATE
Folate is an essential nutrient for cellular growth and development. Folate performs important functions in the healthy body, and sufficiently high levels are needed before and during pregnancy.
