Only the strong survive. The secret to fresh kiwi fruit
Kiwi fruits must travel far to reach the majority of their export markets. But despite this, supply chain-related waste is low and business is booming. One key factor ensures lasting kiwi freshness
…but what is it?
New Zealand is home to a thriving kiwi industry led by Zespri International Limited.
Over hundered million trays of kiwis are exported each year to fifty-five ports around the world.
Pallets are double stacked in cool stores for up to six months then shipped in refrigerated vessels.
Upon their arrival in some markets, the packaging is exposed to very challenging conditions.
Thanks to the top-quality, robust packaging, kiwis stay fresh all the way to the final consumer.
