Pan Pac is a forestry and timber products company located solely in Hawke’s Bay. It employs about 800 staff and contractors but many other local businesses service the company. Pan Pac manages 33,500 hectares of plantation forest including Esk and Mohaka that border Poutiri Ao ō Tāne.

Pan Pac’s forests are Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) accredited which is the gold standard for environmental certification. This means that the forests are managed according to strict environmental, social and economic standards.

Pan Pac supports the community by making financial donations to a wide range of charities, schools, sports clubs and other organisations. The biggest single donation was $1.6 million towards the upgrading of Napier’s Municipal Theatre. The most recent major donation was continuing support of the Hawke’s Bay Helicopter Rescue Trust.

Pan Pac supports many local conservation efforts including those in the project area. This includes ECOED through contributing to the maintenance of the Pan Pac Kiwi Creche, conservation week plantings at Lake Tutira, assisting the Guthrie Smith Trust, and Poutiri through having predator traps within our forests bounding the project, and providing materials for the seabird nest boxes.
