Tauranga locals and visitors had the  chance to meet a real rock star and donate  to the Trustpower TECT Rescue Helicopter, with a visit to our superphosphate plant as part of Port of Tauranga’s summer tours in January.

The reality is that we operate a superphosphate manufacturing plant in the middle of Tauranga city.

 “We play a valuable role in this community through employment, we are caretakers of our local environment, and we want to be good neighbours,” said Acting Mount Maunganui Site Operations Manager Daryl Richardson.

The rock tour proved popular, and all 25 tours over ten days were sold out.




"Thousands of people drive past our site every day. We were delighted to invite them in and show them how an insoluble rock can turn into superphosphate which supports soil fertility on farms, orchards and market gardens around the country."
