“Environment for Life” is the philosophy of the three founding partners of Energie Fruit.
Our three companies, Hoddy’s Orchard, Energie Produce Ltd and Daelyn Partnership formed Energie Fruit in 2007 with a life commitment to the many environments that surround us – the work environment, the community environment, the customer environment and the physical environment.
“We passionately believe in protecting and nurturing these environments to ensure our continued success in the fruit industry and to leave it in good shape for future generations”.
Walter Hoddy planted his family’s first apple tree in Nelson, New Zealand around 1915. Since then each successive generation has carried on the family tradition of growing premium quality apples. The Hoddy’s long standing attitude of “Quality without Compromise” has been adopted by the founding partners of Energie Fruit and has become synonymous with fruit from the Energie Fruit Company.
