Here at Kiwicare, we have a long and proud history of serving New Zealand, Australia and people all around the globe. In fact, we started out in the Garden City of Christchurch back in 1985 as a small family business with big dreams. Now as industry leaders, and plant, animal and pest experts, we are invested in the guardianship of our natural environment. We’re dedicated to protecting plants from the threat of invasive weeds. And preserving our precious birdsong, by eradicating introduced pests, so that we can be proud of the work we’ve done for generations to come. We also want people to feel like heroes in their own backyards, by giving them a tool for every job and an answer for every problem, so that they can make their place, a better place. In a nutshell, we care – We’re Kiwicare – it’s in our name!
Whether you’re at war with ants in your kitchen or Californian Thistle in the great outdoors, we can help. From backyard to bush we have your needs covered. And we proudly partner with the likes of the Department of Conservation to supply all of their herbicide requirements. Kiwicare has a wide range of pest, rodent and weed control products, as well as plant care, lawn, camping and cleaning products for both domestic use and large-scale commercial and rural use. In fact, we can provide products in sizes of up to 1,000L to meet commercial needs.
Research & Innovation
Clever. Better. Different. These three words sit at the heart of what we do and drive us to keep innovating and finding new ways to better service our consumers, partners and our ecosystem.
When it comes to innovation, we use the best minds from across our business to create solutions that make difficult problems easier to solve. It’s a recipe that works. In the average year Kiwicare has anywhere between 100 to 150 products in our NPD pipeline. And we source only from ethical supply partners across Australasia, Europe and the US. Kiwicare products meet the MPI and ACVM guidelines. We also have the largest BioGro® Certified Organic Range in New Zealand. View our certificates.
We’re local but far reaching
With manufacturing facilities in Christchurch and warehousing/distribution facilities out of Auckland, we’re about as local as you can get. Kiwicare has an extensive range of products and tools, which can be found in more than 2,500 retail locations from 350 retail customers in New Zealand. We also service over 370 commercial customers like government agencies, local and regional councils, engineering firms, rural suppliers and more. And across the ditch in Australia, we’re found in over 1,850 retail outlets too and are a market leader in the camping and outdoor leisure category.
