New biosecurity advisor: Erin Lane
7 February 2019

KVH is pleased to announce the appointment of Erin Lane as Biosecurity Advisor.

Erin comes to KVH from the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) where she held various roles over her seven years there. She began as a Quarantine Officer in Auckland, working at the port, airport, mail centre and transitional facilities inspecting and clearing imported goods. Erin also worked as an Incursion Investigator, an Adviser in the Readiness and Response team, and an Adviser in the Regulation area, working specifically on Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB) regulation.

Most recently, Erin has worked in Japan with the vehicle industry on educating and promoting better biosecurity practices, and more specifically, BMSB management across their supply chain to ensure that the risk posed by this unwanted pest remains offshore.

Erin brings with her biosecurity expertise and experience, with a sound understanding of biosecurity policy, standard setting and risk analysis. In her role at KVH, she will be focussing on maintaining accurate and up to date pest lists to help prioritise readiness efforts. She will be working closely with growers and the wider kiwifruit industry to ensure awareness of biosecurity threats, to support the industry to manage any biosecurity risks, and to help increase the industry’s level of overall biosecurity preparedness.

There will also be a biosecurity quiz round run by KVH who will be at the A&P Show all day on Saturday to answer any questions you may have about the work we’re doing to keep unwanted pests and diseases from establishing within our kiwifruit orchards and communities.

Quick survey to have a say
29 November 2018

We’re running a short survey about the ways in which we share information with you, and how often.

We’re working to raise awareness about good biosecurity practice, the benefits these can bring, and the potentially devastating impacts of another incursion on our orchards. In doing this, we need to learn more about the ways you prefer us to keep in touch with you and how we can get important information under your nose.

This survey will give us a clearer picture of what we should do more of and what we should do less of so that we’re better serving growers by providing the information and resources needed.

Your views are important – please take part (it will only take a couple of minutes to complete) and help us work together to continue protecting New Zealand’s kiwifruit industry from unwanted pest and disease threats. Complete the survey here.

The survey closes 5pm Monday 3 December 2018.

All responses are anonymous and will be kept confidential to KVH.
