Kiwifruit industry contribution to biosecurity direction
The KVH team have made a significant contribution to the development of the Biosecurity 2025 direction statement for New Zealand which is now well underway with a clear direction and detail being put together on how each of the five Working Groups are going to work to meet our collective goals.
The new issue of Biosecurity 2025: Making it happen is out now to provide you with an update on what’s happening to implement the statement and raise the profile of biosecurity. Some highlights from the kiwifruit industry included in this issue of the national newsletter are:
- a video from KVH Board Vice Chairman Graeme Marshall (who is also the Chair of the Biosecurity Ministerial Advisory Committee) on the key role businesses have in managing biosecurity risk
- a summary report of the group trip to Chile, including Matt Dyck from KVH, to learn about their response to Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB)
- a profile on Working Group member James Trevelyan and the journey of the kiwifruit industry post-Psa
- an article on the success of Biosecurity Week here in Mount Maunganui
