A few words about CoralTree
Let us introduce ourselves
We juice New Zealand’s best apples to bottle the world’s best organic Apple Cider Vinegar for you.
Our CoralTree orchard exists to bring you quality health-giving food, produced in an ethical system.
CoralTree started in the late ‘80s (and that was quite a struggle!) It was one of the first commercially certified organic orchards in pip fruit production. By the mid 90’s we were able to run it as a permaculture based orchard with absolutely no toxins entering the production process.
Once our vinegar got out there, customers wanted more and more of the tangy flavour and strong nutrition. By the mid 90’s CoralTree was a registered company, the first in NZ to be producing certified organic apple and pear juice’s and Apple Cider Vinegar.
CoralTree is now operating out of a purpose-built processing plant that we designed in sunny Otaki on the Kapiti Coast of New Zealand. We export to Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, South Africa and Japan.
CoralTree Apple Cider Vinegar is the best-selling local brand in New Zealand and outsells the larger international brands.
It’s awesome to see the positive response our customers see in their health from taking CoralTree Apple Cider Vinegar.
Meet Kim Baker
I get up every morning, to make humanity more in tune with nature.
I’ve got a bit of a stubborn streak. I’ve always run my own businesses – starting off contracting, forestry & sawmilling. But then in the late 80’s my house burnt down. After I lost all my personal possessions the transformative energies drove me to want to create.
It broke my heart to see all the destruction happening. On a personal level, individuals weren’t taking responsibility for their own health. And the large scale destruction I saw happening to the environment. I felt driven to help humans to understand the very privileged position we all hold. We need to appreciate the abundance this planet gives us.
So I bought an orchard, ran organics and permaculture courses and built an eco-house (no toxic materials). Then I developed a processing option for the surplus apples I was growing. To help grow the vision, I became a foundation member of the New Zealand Organic exporting group. And I became proud Father. It was a busy time!
I am proud to be, 100% owner of CoralTree Organic Products Limited. I am passionate about driving it to be a successfully international brand, known for making the best Apple Cider Vinegar in the world.
