Mathieson says Zespri had also made strong progress on delivering on its purpose of helping people, communities and the environment around the world thrive through the goodness of kiwifruit.
“Across 2019/20, we invested significantly around the world as part of our efforts to strengthen communities. That saw us support food rescue charities, the training of lifeguards, a kiwi breeding programme, multiple scholarships and health charities.
“We also launched the Zespri Young and Healthy Virtual Adventure, which will see us working with primary schools around the country to promote healthy lifestyles, and we helped support those most in need as part of our response to the challenge posed by COVID-19.”
With Zespri launching its sustainability targets in 2020, Mathieson says Zespri will continue its focus on important issues such as becoming carbon positive, developing measures to monitor and improve the industry’s impact on waterways, and doing even more to support communities and our workforce.
