What are our threat levels?

The KVH Dashboard is produced to provide the industry with a view of current biosecurity threat levels and our ability to respond to these threats should they arrive. The Dashboard includes a summary of information relevant to the kiwifruit industry from latest risk reporting by the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI).

The latest Dashboard is available here.

Community partnerships

Ko Tātou This Is Us is a partnership between people, organisations, Māori, and central, local and regional government.

It's aim is to make our biosecurity system more resilient and future-focused to protect our taonga and New Zealand from pests and diseases, and asks everyone to take a moment to think about how biosecurity protects our way of life.

There are also several kiwifruit industry, community, and regional initiatives KVH helps drive in the spirit of this partnership - including the Port of Tauranga Biosecurity Excellence and Tauranga Moana Biosecurity Capital programmes.

Levy

A levy for biosecurity readiness and response activities and all related biosecurity activities of 0.6 cents per tray for all varieties came into effect on 6 March 2015. Every year at the KVH AGM, grower members agree to the levy. For the 2021/22 year the rate is 1.05 cents per tray, and for the 2022/23 year the rate is 1 cent per tray. A copy of the levy is available here.
