Let us be your partners in craft
If you aspire to do things differently and try new things, if your focus is on quality, efficiency and maximising every aspect of what you do, then join the journey with us.
We are New Zealand's largest hop grower, producing flavourful aromatic hops, which we then process in our premier hop processing, packaging and cool store facility, delivering them to the most discerning brewers all over the world.
We have an epic innovation line up, with you, the brewer in mind. This includes the Southern Hemisphere’s first and only cryogenic processing line to make super-concentrated lupulin pellets. Also here in New Zealand, we produce concentrated hop oil products. It's not just products, there are new and exciting hop varieties we will soon bring to the market, thanks to our partnership with Plant & Food Research, the country’s leading hop breeder.
Clayton Hops was founded by three brothers with a thirst for ingenuity and a naturally adventurous spirit. We’re driven to make our industry and your brews more sustainable, rethinking every part of the process for maximum efficiency, maximum consistency - and maximum flavour.
