KiwiSeng is a pioneering and innovative leader in the ginseng industry.

With the first plants sown in 2002, KiwiSeng is a New Zealand natural health products company backed by a strong New Zealand and Chinese heritage. We are committed to the development of innovative natural health and wellbeing products, backed by credible scientific research.

With around 80% of New Zealand’s wild-grown ginseng, KiwiSeng has the largest growing operation, the most diverse range of products and established distribution channels world-wide.

Since the early 2000's, KiwiSeng has heavily invested time and capital in ginseng crop establishment, growth and harvesting, ginsenoside research, new product development, branding, distribution and marketing. New Zealand is poised to become the fifth largest exporter of ginseng in the world and create an industry with significant export potential. Compared with every other ginseng producing country, New Zealand has the following significant advantages:

  • Volcanic soils, high UV light, rainfall, forest type, altitude, and few natural pests and diseases. 

  • Well-managed monoculture pine forests that have uniform age, management and growth characteristics. These forests provide an ideal growing environment and make it easy to manage ginseng as an understory crop.

  • An advanced food processing industry with strict standards.

  • An export sector that is focused on value-added primary products.

  • World-class forestry and food science research capability. 

  • Established velvet and Manuka honey industries – which are complementary products.

  • Government sectors committed to provincial growth, increasing the export potential and new product development.

  • A large and progressive tourism industry.

  • The value of ‘Brand New Zealand’.
