Our Story

Tūaropaki Trust is a Māori land organisation with an asset base of over $1 billion. The Trust was formed by 297 families amalgamating their land in the 1950s. Beginning in sheep and beef farming, the Trust was an early developer of geothermal power and now has a diverse business portfolio including a geothermal power station, hydrogen energy production, engineering and drilling services, native plant nursery, sustainability centre, as well as dairy, beef and sheep farming. The Trust also has investments in the USA and Canada. At the core of this organisation is a desire to drive prosperity for their owners and their families, so there is a strong focus on whānau, the future and sustainability.
