Our story

We are born of Japan and made of New Zealand.

We honour the mastery of two centuries past.
And embrace also the new of today.
We are charged with carrying a tradition.
And we do it with pride.
We do it with respect.

For the animals.
For our farmers.
For our partners.
For our customers.

And we do it without compromise.
We respect the people we work with,
and share our passion.

They grow the grain, care for our animals, and share our success.
We are all in it together and we’re in it for only one thing.
To create the finest products.

The mastery of heritage, lineage, husbandry,
and expertise meets the purity of grass, grain,
water, and air.

Black Origin – True Mastery, Rich Purity
