About us

Echodale Marketing

ECHODALE MARKETING LTD is proudly NZ owned and is a fifth generation family business which has been operating in the Nelson region for 80 years. It has become a leading distributor of quality apples & pears. 

Echodale has a background of retailing fruit to the public for over 40 years from a small, but busy shop located on the orchard. Since deregulating, the shop has closed and the business has focused on wholesale distribution 12 months of the year to locations all over NZ. Our fruit is marketed under the brands Nelson Fresh, Suncrisp and Kiwi Crisp.

We select only the best produce, the majority grown in the Nelson region which is renowned for its high sunshine hours and exceptional taste in pip fruit. From the orchard through to storing, packing and delivering to the market, we are dedicated to bringing you the best. To ensure we align with the best practices for the production, packing and distribution of NZ produce, we are committed to the NZ GAP Programme.

We have a range of fruit stored in Controlled Atmosphere cool stores which ensures our customers receive quality fruit year round. At our packing shed, which is dedicated to the NZ market, the fruit is packed into a number of sizes, brands and quantities to suit the individual needs of our customers. With many years of experience in the Pipfruit market, we have a strong understanding of the market and we strive to meet its ever changing expectations.
