Our History

America’s Cup

The inspiration for Kai Gourmet came out of the 2013 America’s Cup that was held in San Francisco, California.

yatching at NZ

Following Rugby, the greatest sporting activity in New Zealand is yachting, so it’s not surprising that New Zealand not only brought out its best yacht but also its extraordinary fresh, sustainable seafood, dairy, meat and wines to showcase to the United States and the World the exceptionally high-quality products they produce!

Fresh seafood

Kai Gourmet supplied a brilliant array of these products to numerous government functions and to the extremely popular New Zealand owned pop-up restaurant, “Waiheki.”

The event was so successful, (despite New Zealand not winning the trophy) that Kai decided to stay in the United States and team up with some incredibly talented producers from around the globe.
