Strawberry industry hopes Kiwis will buy export excess

16th November 2020 By Staff Reporter | news@foodticker.co.nz | @foodtickernz

A bumper growing season and restricted exports due to the Covid-19 pandemic means the strawberry industry is hoping New Zealanders will support local growers by buying more of the berryfruit this season. 

Strawberry Growers NZ executive manager Mick Ahern said there had been ideal growing conditions this season, and as exports were slightly constrained this year, a huge amount of product would be available from now until Christmas.

The strawberry export market was worth $6.28m in 2018, with key international markets including Thailand, Singapore and Hong Kong.
