Enso International Ltd is based in Christchurch and is a leading food importer and distributor of quality Asian and English products for the New Zealand grocery market.

Enso International Ltd was established in the 1980’s, and acquired by the Mountford and Hawkins families in 2002. Since the Mountford and Hawkins partnership the business has seen rapid growth, with the expansion into the North Island grocery market and development of an extensive product portfolio, which has come to include the company’s own brand.

There is a strong focus on unity, respect and common sense family values. Decisions are carefully thought through and discussed prior to implementation. It is these values which have helped shape Enso International into a successful business.  

Accuracy at time of order placement, warehouse picking, loading, delivery and shelf management are all part of the service offering.

The company imports an extensive range of quality products which are all sourced from well-established and monitored manufacturers from Thailand, Japan, China, Korea, and the USA. The business is always looking to add new and exciting products to the current product offering by responding to consumer demand and predicting consumer trends within the market.
