CSI Processors was established in 1995 to supply fresh processed vegetables to the food manufacturing industry. Based in Hastings, New Zealand, the modern, purpose-built manufacturing site hosts a team of 50 dedicated employees. Up to 7,000 MT/year of freshly grown vegetables are processed on a two-shift, 5-day roster system.
The NZFSA (New Zealand Food Safety Authority) Food Safety Program shows the drive for high quality product. Consistent, cost competitive supply of the best quality fresh vegetables on a daily basis to leading customers has established CSI as one of the countrys leading fresh vegetable processors.
In June 2002, CSI Processors was the winner of the Heinz-Watties Australasia Vendor of the Year Award. This award is based on the criteria of cost savings, invoicing accuracy, communication and responsiveness, product quality, orders on time and in full, and technical support.
The company handles a variety of produce, predominately onions, carrots and potatoes, prepared for customers as fresh whole (peeled and trimmed), fresh diced and sliced (in various sizes) and frozen sauté product. Expansion into a range of sauté products has rapidly progressed. Technical expertise has resulted in the export of specifically grown and processed sauté onions for hamburg manufacture for the Australian and Japanese markets.
CSIs products are also used in soups, sauces and dressings, ready meals, pizza toppings, pies and fresh cut salads. They manufacture and import acetified products and are currently moving into the foodservice and retail markets. Looking to the future, the team at CSI is combining innovation, technology and customer support with the freshest New Zealand vegetables to manufacture an ever-increasing range of top quality products.
