Rocket Foods and Rowing New Zealand

Our partnership with Rowing NZ began in 2006 when Managing Director, Derek Jones and his wife, Judy Jones, became involved with sponsoring Rowing NZ through previous businesses. In 2016, we were delighted to make Rocket Foods the principal partner supporting this exciting sport.  

At Rocket Foods, we have a commitment to strive for excellence. This same commitment is shared by Rowing NZ, we see so many parallels between our business and Rowing and are delighted to support this sport which has such talented and dedicated people within it. We’ve been very much welcomed into the rowing community. Through our continued support of Rowing NZ, hope that Rowing can continue to be an inspiring sport for aspiring athletes.
