ZESPRI is an international company which is currently the leader in the industry. Their localization into the Bay of Plenty is part of its strategy, as 80% of NZ kiwifruit are produced there. The company is a leading marketer worldwide. They export in 60 countries, such as in China, Japan, and Europe, and sell over 390,000 tons of kiwifruit each year. In general, the sale volume of kiwifruit increased in all the countries they exported in. ZESPRI represents 30% of the whole traded volume, and the company is still growing year after year thanks to increasing demand. The main markets are Japan, Spain, Germany, and Korea.

The strategy to have a large portfolio of export countries engenders fewer risks. They employ over 130 staff in New Zealand and 100 offshore. They have great awareness and notoriety. Their Label allows customers to recognize their products. The brand name is the result of a complex thought (attractive, distinctive?) pronounceable in different languages.

They have different size, different quality, different tastes, depending on Orchard management practices, weather and harvest date? ZESPRI also use special growing techniques. They emphasize on quality and their control system is complex. The most famous variety is the Gold kiwifruit (more profitable with a higher price). They constantly research on new cultivars creation. Innovating is really important for the company. All varieties have intellectual properties (patent, license). They deliver a fruit with a unique flavor and soft texture. Furthermore the products' attributes are an advantage and they communicate largely on it (vitamin C, low fat?). All products are traceable. The quality of the kiwifruit have huge advantages such as repeat customer purchase (increase revenues) and also lower fruit loss (reduce costs). The price of the fruits depends on demand and exchange rate. They charge a premium price and use a grid pricing. Products are valued by customers and customers are loyal.
