Gourmet Mokai Ltd.

Established: 2002

Location: Mokai, 30kms North West of Taupo (central North Island)

Area under glass: 114,000 m2 (11.4 hectares)

Produce Grown: Truss Tomatoes/ Capsicums


This glasshouse was established in 2002 to grow and market Capsicum and Tomatoes. Gourmet Mokai is a joint venture with two New Zealand Maori trusts, utilising naturally occurring underground geothermal steam for heating.


The Capsicums and Tomatoes are grown under glass using a hydroponic type method. Each plant is individually fed with water and fertiliser. Growth is further enhanced by heating the glasshouse.


The temperature, humidity and light intensity are continually monitored by a computer system.

The growing environment that the computer system monitors is formulated by the production manager.
