Te Mata Fig's MPI Notice of Registration
Te Mata Figs is committed to quality in all aspects of its operation. Because we use figs for our products, we sell only the best quality figs fresh in season.
Te Mata Figs is committed to sustainability in its land use, growing, manufacturing and packaging. Our figs grow without any fertiliser, sprays or irrigation. We use grass swards to encourage soil health and weed matting to reduce weeds. Our products are manufactured without the use of artificial preservatives or additives. We use recyclable cardboard packaging for fresh figs, and glass, paper and cellophane for our fig products wherever possible.
