Meet New Zealand King Salmon  - Winner of the 2019 Large Business Award 

Business Category Award Entrant 

As the world’s largest producer with more than 30 years of farming, processing and branding our unique breed, we are the King salmon experts, proudly based here in the Top of the South.

We’re incredibly committed to making sure our King salmon is grown in the safest, most sustainable way possible - we aim to pass on our land and water environments to the next generation and beyond in the same, or better condition than we inherited them.

Our King salmon is the highest quality, tastiest salmon you can get; the natural high oil content results in a wonderfully rich flavour and delicate texture that is renowned by consumers and chefs as their salmon of choice.

We’re also proud that our high value brands - Ōra King, Regal, Southern Ocean and Omega Plus - are known for their quality, category leadership and innovation across New Zealand and an increasing number of international markets.

We employ around 500 people, mainly based in Marlborough and Nelson. New Zealand investors make up a significant percentage of the ownership of NZ King Salmon - nearly 400 of the 2,700 shareholders are from the Top of the South.
