Winners named at the 11th National Pacific Business Trust Awards
Cook Island family-owned fertiliser company Pacific Biofert, who have been in business for more than 30 years, took out the ATEED 2018 Pacific Business Award.
As an agricultural business supplying fertiliser products for the agricultural and horticultural sectors in New Zealand, Pacific Biofert has developed an internationallypatented process and range of products that utilise natural resources to create highly available and cost-effective soil and plant foods.
Pacific Biofert Managing Director Bill Sinclair, who accepted the award on stage with his mother said success was largely thanks to the perseverance of “this lady here” his mother and their late father, because they pushed their kids to succeed and pursue their passions. They built that mentality of pushing to succeed. We are a family business with a strong family at its foundation

Our customers are very confident in MOANA products. Word of mouth has driven major expansion.
“We have been using Pacific Biofert for approximately 9 or 10 years now, and have been able to increase our biomass which is what we have been trying to achieve ... We also have soil samples done throughout the year that indicates it works for us and certainly for the health of the vines, and of course the ultimate aim to achieve a good O.G.R.”

“I started using Moana Extra in my vegetable garden this year ... My veggie garden has never produced vegetables like it. They are larger than normal, and they seem to come on quicker. I carried out a test with my beans and I didn’t spray one of them when I spayed the others and it is still half the height and the others plants all produced beans a long time before the test one. I will continue to use it and Biofert TE and I won’t be using other fertilisers.”
