KiwiNet national award finalist
3 October 2019

KiwiNet - the kiwifruit industry’s network of biosecurity advocates and trained responders to incursions, managed by KVH - was announced last week as a finalist in the industry category for the 2019 Biosecurity Awards.

We're delighted to share this news because KiwiNet is made up of more than 30 organisations from across the kiwifruit industry, most of whom have contributed staff and resources to the recent fruit fly responses in Auckland, and is a true example of how much can be achieved when an industry works together as one.

You can read more about KiwiNet, including some profiles from people within the industry who were recently in Auckland working on the fruit fly responses here.

There is more good news – Tauranga Moana Biosecurity Capital (TMBC) has also been announced as a finalist in the community award category for new projects. We’ve been a member of TMBC since the creation of the initiative, which brings together a coalition of willing groups and establishes Tauranga Moana iwi at the centre of our regional biosecurity team. As well as iwi, members include community groups, industry, businesses, agencies, educators, scientists and others striving to achieve biosecurity excellence.

The Biosecurity Awards take place Monday 4 November when winners will be announced at an event in Auckland.
