Clayton Hops is incredibly proud and excited to announce that it is building a new world-class hop pelletising, packaging and cool store facility in the Nelson region of New Zealand. More details will follow but this will be New Zealand's largest and most sophisticated hop processing facility and it will be ready in time for our 2023 harvest.
"This large investment is testament to Clayton Hops’ commitment to our discerning customers around the world to supply top quality New Zealand hops at scale and in a timely manner" says the CEO of Clayton Hops, Brian Clayton.
NZ Hops Ltd has been in extensive discussions with Clayton Hops on partnering the management of the facility. Clayton Hops looks forward to continuing these discussions, with both parties recognising the opportunities created for the New Zealand hop industry by these new assets.
