About Us

In May 2017, The Crawshaw family jumped at the opportunity to purchase Waipak and prevent the job losses of over 20 staff members. With our excellent team, years of expertise, significant investment and overdue plant maintenance we have expanded our production capacity massively since taking over the business and have grown Waipak to achieve great success in a short time period. 

Client's Feedback

“For us at Wairere Creamery, customer service is as important as the product. The team at Waipak supply us with our 1 & 2 litre bottles and lids for our fresh Goat Milk. We love the look and shape of the bottles and they fit our brand perfectly! But not only that, the bottles are delivered on time every time which is critical for us. On the rare occasions we’ve given any constructive feedback, it’s been handled quickly and professionally and without issue. We appreciate the friendly service every time we call!”
