Our Cherry Brand

Exceptional Beyond brand cherries from the Lindis Peaks and Mt Pisa orchards of Central Otago will be launched in late 2022. Available between December and February – in perfect time for Lunar New Year celebrations – our sweet, crisp, delightful Beyond cherries are the newest cherry offering from the Central Otago region.

Our cherries are packed with care into high-grade, luxurious packaging inspired by the outstanding colours and iconography of our region. Our boxes make an impact, win attention, prolong shelf life and maximise enjoyment. Cherries arrive via air freight within two days of harvest.

At every step – from planting to packing – we go above and beyond to achieve the highest quality cherries. We carefully select and train orchard and packing staff and employ the latest technologies to grade and supply fruit.

We produce eight proven varieties in the world’s best cherry growing region of Central Otago and, because we strive for perfection, we continue to trial new varieties for our discerning customers. Our cherries simply taste and look better because they are.
