The Hazelnut Company

The Hazelnut Company was founded with the dream to provide New Zealand with New Zealand sourced hazelnuts and hazelnut products.

The majority of their growers have planted the New Zealand developed “Whiteheart” cultivar tree which grows well in our climate and is free of major pests and diseases. The Whiteheart produces a creamy white coloured nut with a delicious flavour. Larger nut varieties, including those from polliniser trees are used for table nuts and will form part of the overall development for value added products, including pressing for hazelnut oil.
