There’s a saying that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and it rings true of the Taylor family, who have been in the apple business for more than 100 years.
Taylor Corporation Ltd is a family owned and operated Apple Growing, Packing and Exporting company located in the sunny Hawke’s Bay region of New Zealand.
Taylor Corporation Ltd was launched in 1995 by Kelvin and Lynette Taylor, from its parent company Golden Del Orchards Ltd.
Kelvin, followed his father Wally and grandfather Walter into the industry in the early 1960s.
Kelvin worked for his father and at the age of 18, sold his car and used the proceeds to buy five hectares next door to develop his own orchard and packing facility.
Today, spread over 300 hectares in Hastings are the pack house and Golden Del orchards, the Taylor-owned apple orchards that feed its packing and exporting business.
