Social media launch

29 June 2017

We’ve launched new Facebook, Twitter and YouTube social media pages so that we can engage with more people across the wider kiwifruit industry, and share biosecurity messages with the public.

It’s important to us that everyone is involved in biosecurity and sees that they have a part to play in helping keep out unwanted pests and threats. We’ll be promoting general biosecurity messages, telling our story (how we came to be and what or goals are for the kiwifruit industry), sharing positive stories about kiwifruit growers and promoting upcoming events like field days and biosecurity weeks.

Being online will also enable us to spread messages more efficiently and quickly when we need to let people know about new incursions, any effects they may or may not have on kiwifruit (like myrtle rust recently), and what actions people need to take. We’ll be joining the likes of Zespri, NZKGI, Avocado NZ and the Ministry of Primary Industries to share their messages and videos too.

You can follow us on Twitter @KVHNZ or find us on Facebook and You Tube at Kiwifruit Vine Health - KVH.
