One of the country’s leading growers, Bostock Group, is looking at selling some or all of its business. It remains unclear whether the sale is part of an investment strategy to raise money for the group, or if owner John Bostock wants to call time on his horticulture empire which he started in the 1980s with his late wife. Bostock Group boasts about 2500 ha of orchards and growing land around Hawke’s Bay used for growing apples, squash, onions, and grain. It also caters for chicken farms. Bostock Group owner and founder John Bostock was commenting on the advertisement in Hawkes Bay Today newspaper. Bostock Group is a major employer in Hawke’s Bay with 200 permanent staff and up to 800 staff in the peak of the season, with the company exporting across the world.
