Change to KVH Protocol - Fruit Bins

Last week KVH held an audit debrief with packhouses; and as a result some changes have been made to KVH Protocol—Fruit Bins.

The main change allows postharvest operators in Recovery regions to have their cleaned and sanitised bins (destined for Whangarei, Kerikeri and NW Auckland) inspected by KVH now—before being placed in sealed coolstores for next harvest. This will avoid double-handling and save packhouses time and expense.

A KVH inspection sticker will be attached to checked bins so growers can identify them on arrival to the orchard next harvest. A percentage of these bins will again be inspected by KVH before being dispatched to orchards next season.


KVH investigates reports of unusual symptoms to identify and manage any biosecurity risks.
