Kai a te Rangatira he Korero

The sustenance of the Chiefs is robust debate.

We are committed to using produce and artisan suppliers from our Waikato and Bay of Plenty communities. Our contemporary and innovative table is built from understanding our tikanga and what it can create for taste profiles and techniques.

We bring people together to share not just food but also conversation, replenishment and growth that comes from sharing food. This act is at the heart of all communities. We wish to play this role in the University of Waikato – growing and strengthening it, not just for those who are already part of the University community, but every time we bring new people into that community through an event.


Kahurangi is the University of Waikato’s new exclusive catering supplier.

Based on campus, we operate Kahurangi Kitchen in the Halls of Residence, Kahurangi Cafe in the Oranga building and Kahurangi - the official University catering service.
