Spotlight shines on Thomas Bros

The kiwifruit industry has a new video star in Steve Thomas from Thomas Bros, who features in the industry’s latest contribution to the national Ko Tatou This Is Us biosecurity campaign.

KVH worked with Steve to produce the short video, championing the importance of biosecurity to business best practice, and keeping pests and diseases out of New Zealand - as well as stopping them spreading if they do make it here. This is something close to Steve and his multi-generational organisation’s heart as they are based in sunny Riwaka, at the top of the South Island (where Psa hasn’t been detected).

“We all remember how it felt when Psa first arrived, and how we united and supported affected growers in the North. We don’t want anyone to face a similar big incursion again.”

“That’s why strong biosecurity is so important. If we keep doing the right things, we’ll spot any other new threat early enough to do something about it” Steve says.

Watch the new video on the KVH YouTube channel here.

You’ll also see it across our social media as well as Ko Tatou This Is Us social media sites and advertising.
