Food and nutrition has been in the Raisey family blood for nearly a century. It's just what we do.

So has playing sport and living an active, healthy lifestyle. It made perfect sense then, to combine the two and bring you Raisey's Original Sports & Lifestyle Nutrition. 

What started as a casual comment between a father and son, has become a reality and a passion. From humble beginnings in a small kitchen to a brand new purpose built blending studio, we have developed, and continue to develop, our range of high performance but down-to-earth nutrition products we are proud to offer to you. It's OUR family name, so that's YOUR guarantee of a quality product, at a fair price with friendly personal service.  

We do things a little different here at Raiseys Original. Every batch is made with love and care here in sunny Napier, New Zealand. Our ingredients come from trusted sources and we are very proud to say the whey protein we use is from grass fed happy, healthy, free roaming local cows. It's the best protein you can get anywhere in the world. 

 

"Traditional principles like quality, value and service are what we are building this brand on." 

  

 

Darryl Raisey
Founder

Darryl has been working and excelling in the food and proteins industry for 40+ years and is our formulation wizard and trouble shooting maestro. There really is nothing he can't fix. He was the founder of Bacon & Smallgoods HB Ltd which eventually became Medallion Foods and one of NZs biggest bacon companies. Darryl has extensive knowledge and experience right across the food industry and has always been innovative with his ideas. He is a fine engineer also and custom makes most of our machinery to suit our needs exactly and has always been a bit of a “backyard" inventor/scientist hence some of our products are a bit different to some other brands.  Darryl has always stood for Quality, Value and Service and these are the principles that we are building this business on also. Darryl was a keen race car driver and held local hillclimb records in his Mini in the late 60s (one stood for 20+ years) and he was more than handy on the squash court. His pride and joy is his AMG A45 Mercedes Benz and his spare time is usually taken up with doing something “in the shed”, "around the house", or just relaxing "on the couch" (and he’s a great cook!).

Kane Raisey
Director, Website, Shop, Despatch
Ph: 027 453 1706

Kane is a native of Napier and was often in and around local gyms as a youngster. Having local legends and World Championship Powerlifters Derek and Wayne Pomana (who are still Raiseys customers) at the local gym just developed his interest in fitness even more. Kane played Rugby Union for Knottingley when in England and Rugby League for Pakuranga Jaguars in the Auckland OAR competition. He had a successful motor racing career, winning twice, and placing 2nd three times in various NZ Championships, regularly beating racers who are now NZ/Aust household names. To keep fit, Kane swings kettle bells around 3 times a week and walks up and down a few hills around Napier. He is a songwriter in a Napier originals band and is also slightly obsessed with loud things like guitars and motorcycles.
