KONO in Maori means 'food basket'. It is a traditional woven basket used to carry, protect and present produce by the Maori. It is made from New Zealand's native flax, the harakeke plant.
Harakeke is an integral part of the indigenous Maori world. Since ancient time it has been recognised for its strength, durability, adaptability and growth. These qualities are a metaphor for the way we operate.
KONO NZ is owned by an entrepreneurial Maori Company in the top of New Zealand's South Island - Wakatu Incorporation. Wakatu has many food and beverage subsidiaries and KONO is the brand that unites them in markets globally.
