“Kia Ora, Welcome”, to the site of your food packaging specialist and general packaging distributor.
Ayrpak specialise in providing food & beverage packaging solutions to caterers, cafetarias, canteens, event managers, bakeries, hotels, rest homes, supermarket and food chains, delicatessens, retail, wholesale and manufacturing businesses, local and central government departments, corporate, restaurants, takeaways.
It has the most extensive range of natural, biodegradable, compostable food packaging in New Zealand. With a broad general packaging, packaging machinery, labels and food hygiene range in support, Ayrpak provides the complete one stop solution for all packaging needs. Our approach is solutions based, drawing upon many years of experience in food and general packaging to ensure clients needs are met so that they can focus upon what they do best.
Ayrpak is owned and operated by Tony and Anita Ayres. With 16 years each in packaging, they formed Ayrpak in 1995, locating and settling in Kapiti, Wellington.
The business has evolved from general packaging to become the predominant specialist supplier of food & beverage packaging in the lower North Island, whilst retaining an extensive range of general packaging and hygiene products to provide a one stop solution for clients.
Tony & Anita have leveraged upon the advantage of being a relatively small family business so that they have been able to adapt to rapidly changing client and market imperatives. An example of this is being able to adapt much of its food packaging product range to biodegradable, replacing where it can, environmentally harmful plastic and polystyrene products.
We are a founding member of the Nationwide Packaging group, a group of likeminded and structured family owned distributors throughout New Zealand. Distributors will not be "tied" to the group, as independence and local is vitally important. But it will bring economies of scale to marketing, some operating overheads, market and product information sharing and ensure we maintain premier buying status with suppliers. The business has been structured so that our most experienced and knowledgeable people are available to our clients / "on the road".
Our packaging specialists are Tony & Anita Ayres, who predominate throughout the Wellington, Kapiti & Horowhenua region, but who are also committed to meeting clients needs throughout New Zealand. We are very fortunate to have long serving, experienced and highly knowledgeable reception and warehouse folks in Jo Gray and John Souness, who are able to answer queries and provide solutions to clients themselves.
Many of our products have been around for a long time, are ingrained somewhat with the consumer and are necessary for end user delivery. We recognise that some can compromise our beautiful New Zealand environment. We are doing our best to accept some responsibility and are actively changing to environmentally friendly product where we can
We too are passionate about our beautiful New Zealand.
