About Us


Bringing Together Leaders in an Expanding Range of Products and Services.

Midlands Holdings Limited represents a well established group of businesses built around the core business function of specialist seed production. These companies have successfully combined a host of high quality products and professional services to support the success of both our grower suppliers and our international buyers.



The first step in the development of Midlands Holdings Ltd was the establishment of Midlands Seed Ltd in 1990. Midlands Seed Ltd was established to support and encourage the production and export of arable crops from New Zealand. Since then, the company has grown rapidly to become one of New Zealand's top producers and marketers of vegetable and herbage seeds, dried peas and oilseeds, as well as cereal grains.

The vision of this start up company in 1990 was to increase the profitability of New Zealand arable farming and introduce new specialist crops. This focus has remained the same up until now, and has also extended to the other subsidiary companies within Midlands Holdings Ltd. The success of Midlands Seed Ltd has forged a path that has led to the development of this focused group of supporting companies. Consistent with the Midlands origins, these subsidiary companies are all based around the core business of seed production.

From its base in Ashburton, the service center for the New Zealand arable industry, Midlands is well placed to bring together this unique cluster of industry leaders, with an expanding range of products and services on offer.
Midlands Staff are highly respected in the Agricultural Industry and they are well supported by the four Shareholder/Directors who are fully active in the day to day affairs of all the Midlands companies. The Shareholders and Directors are the same across all the companies within Midlands Holdings Ltd.
