Kiwifruit harvest success despite labour issues

2nd July 2021 By Staff Reporter | news@foodticker.co.nz | @foodtickernz

New Zealand Kiwifruit Growers Inc has reported on a successful harvest resulting in a record crop, despite a labour crisis caused by border closures restricting Working Holiday Visa holder numbers.

Chief executive Colin Bond said NZKGI would be closely reviewing and evaluating its 2021 recruitment programme and assessing how the labour uncertainties could be reduced in 2022.

The association added that it was continuing with its free winter pruning taster courses in an effort to raise awareness of the career possibilities and long-term work available in the industry.
