New video shines spotlight on orchard biosecurity

The kiwifruit industry has a new video star in Campbell Wood, who features in the industry’s contribution to the national Ko Tatou This Is Us biosecurity campaign.

KVH and Zespri worked with Campbell to produce a short video for the This Is Us promotional library, championing the importance of biosecurity to business best practice and sustainability.

In the video, Campbell talks about his passion for growing kiwifruit and being on an orchard, and how important it is to orchard owners and managers like him to protect what we’ve got. That’s why biosecurity is so important - It’s about our people, our businesses, lifestyles and incomes he says.

“By actively being part of the biosecurity team and keeping an eye on what’s happening on our orchards, we can help make sure threats like fruit flies or soil diseases don’t sneak up on us.”

You can see the new video on the KVH YouTube channel here. KVH and Zespri will be using the video on social media, as will the Ko Tatou This Is Us campaign team.
