New Zealand Vegetable Oil Limited is based at West Melton. West Melton is a small township on the outskirts of Christchurch. It is ideally located on the main state highway west, and only a short distance from Christchurch itself.
New Zealand Vegetable Oil’s factory has been purpose built and the environment is completely enclosed to ensure the best possible processing conditions.
The entire process and factory is covered by a HACCP based Food Safety Programme under the Ministry of Primary Industries. This programme is audited annually.
NZVO has developed its own unique processing and filtration systems with most of the equipment being custom made from leading European manufacturers. Robin’s mechanical expertise has enabled NZVO to develop the process into a unique, efficient and sustainable system.
