About Us

Here at Riverlea we pride ourselves on doing things a little differently. Our commitment to you is to deliver fruit and vegetables, backed by our quality assurance and dedication to outstanding customer service.

Riverlea has built up a strong reputation for a diverse range of products and great customer service. Our friendly staff have years of experience in the fresh produce industry and always aim to go the extra mile for the customer.

What do we do?

Riverlea is a leading supplier of fresh produce to the hospitality industry, work places and home deliveries, around the North Island of New Zealand. We are constantly keeping our service fresh, with new ideas often inspired by our customer's specific needs.

It's our aim to always have the most competitive pricing, the freshest produce, the biggest range year round and the best service.

Growing strong for more than 30 years

Riverlea has a proud history of delivering fresh produce to New Zealand homes and businesses for more than 30 years on our family-run farm in the Manawatu.

Initially we started growing gourmet lettuces, such as fancy or hydroponic lettuces (we still do!), and it just grew from there.

We have grown a valuable network of suppliers over the years, ensuring you get access to the widest range of fruit and vegetables year round.

Our dedication to service has been recognised with Riverlea being a finalist in Hospitality Awards "Supplier of the Year" since 2008.
