About KVH

our vision: A biosecurity resilient kiwifruit industry / He ahumahi huakiwi koiora tokatū

Kiwifruit Vine Health (KVH) is a leading biosecurity organisation dedicated to supporting the New Zealand kiwifruit industry.

We were established in December 2010 to lead the industry response to the Psa incursion. Since November 2012 we have been the lead organisation responsible for managing all biosecurity readiness, response, and operations on behalf of the kiwifruit industry.

We are an industry established body, accountable to our industry members, working to manage biosecurity industry-wide.

We work with kiwifruit growers, Zespri, New Zealand Kiwifruit Growers Inc (NZKGI), the post-harvest and associated industries such as beekeepers, pollen providers, nurseries and contractors; and the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI).

We are strategic, practical, responsive and transparent in all that we do. The decisions we make are based on industry knowledge, research, and experience.

The KVH Strategy 2023-30 includes a Vision, Mission, and four priority work areas to guide our work. The strategy also outlines what we will do within each of the four priority areas to achieve our Vision and Mission.
