Tirofruit are deeply committed to giving back to our community and making a positive impact in the lives of those around us. Our values of caring, connections, and cultivating extend beyond the orchards, and we actively seek opportunities to support and uplift our local community. We believe that by working together, we can create a brighter future for everyone.

Peria House

One of the organisations close to our hearts is Peria House Limited, a retirement village for the elderly based in Opotiki. Peria House is wholly owned by Peria Society Inc., a registered charity. Ray Sharp, Tirofruit’s founding owner, plays an integral role in supporting Peria House.

Eastern Bay Community Foundation

Tirofruit is also proud to be associated with the Eastern Bay Community Foundation. This independent, local, not-for-profit charitable trust aims to encourage charitable giving within the Opotiki, Whakatane and Kawerau District communities. The Foundation has long been a part of our commitment to the betterment of our communities. Ray has recently retired from the board of trustees of the Foundation after 16 years of service.

The Eastern Bay Community Foundation’s vision aligns with our values, aiming to encourage permanent, substantial endowment funds that can meet existing and emerging needs within our communities. 

Contributing to the Eastern Bay Community Foundation not only enables us to make a sustainable and positive impact now and in the future, but also reflects our commitment to the community and environment, aligning with causes close to our hearts.
