Spotlight shines on Sydney

The kiwifruit industry has a new on-screen biosecurity champion in Sydney Hines from Sybton Hort, who features in the industry’s latest contribution to the national Ko Tatou This Is Us biosecurity campaign.

KVH worked with Sydney to produce the short video, championing biosecurity best practice for our businesses and long-term longevity of production. This is something close to Sydney’s heart given she’s an orchard manager and grew up on a dairy farm.

“The importance of good biosecurity is always front of mind for me because of my experience with managing Psa in kiwifruit and seeing the impacts of Mycoplasma bovis too. By doing everything we can to stop unwanted threats from getting here and establishing, we’re protecting our investments and ensuring our industry continues to grow for many generations to come.”
