We have an in-house laboratory. We will monitor your fruit from development to maturity and through storage. This enables us to help you make important orchard management decisions through the growing season. We continue monitoring your fruit quality as an integral part of our inventory management system, ensuring top performance in the marketplace and maximising Grower returns. 

We have trained staff in Pest and Psa monitoring, assisting growers in following the ZESPRI Crop Protection Programme.

After studying Food Science at Otago University, I worked in the Dairy Industry, there completing a Post Graduate Diploma in Dairy Technology.  Returning to work from having a family I purchased an orchard in 1997, working the orchard led to involvement with post-harvest facilities where my experience has been in all aspects of the business. In 2002 I joined the Hume Pack-N-Cool Ltd team, where today my focus is on ensuring our growers have all they need to successfully contribute in our Industry.
