This business is on the market due to personal reasons and must be sold!!
Longridge is a garlic peeling company that supplies packaged garlic cloves to the restaurant, wholesale and food manufacturing industry sectors, plus new customers that are adding value to the product.
New Zealand grown product is also becoming a very strong contender in the supply of garlic.
The cloves are peeled, packaged and shipped from the site on Dakota Place, Bell Block to customers nationwide.
The raw product is sourced from over seas via two suppliers, one is a very solid importer in Auckland, giving very regular and cost effective supply when required and the second is via a direct international supplier. The business also has NZ suppliers who can can supply NZ product when required.
This business can be relocated and operated from anywhere in the country, providing an opportunity for others in the industry to take advantage of the excellent plant.
At present, the product has been targeted at the commercial market but there are plans to supply smaller packages to the supermarket trade, for use in home cooking. This will provide huge growth to the company.
There is also some work going on with Venture Taranaki with their Branching Out programme. This initiative has identified garlic as a suitable crop to be grown in Taranaki, which will provide opportunities for Longridge for processing locally-grown produce.
This is a superb opportunity to own a business that has huge potential, where all of the ground work has been completed and the product is on the cusp of gaining a real foothold in the NZ market place.
The plant is of a very high standard and there are very skilled and loyal staff on board.

Longridge Garlic offers some genuine growth opportunities, by broadening the customer base with the addition of supermarkets and the value-added garlic products, eg sausage and salami, sauces and condiments businesses.
There is also an opportunity to reduce costs significantly, by eliminating the chiller hire.
