Tauranga pioneers’ new approach to biosecurity threats, could be implemented nationwide: Iwi, businesses, and local and central government have come together through the Tauranga Moana Biosecurity Capital programme to help educate the public on biosecurity risks on our own doorsteps.

BMSB threat to Bay's billion-dollar kiwifruit industry: A 260% increase in the number of Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs (BMSB) found at New Zealand's borders has heightened a billion-dollar risk to the Bay of Plenty economy. In Italy the bugs have been found to cause up to 40% drop in kiwifruit prior to harvest.

Biosecurity Award finalists reflect huge national effort in biosecurity: KVH is honoured to represent kiwifruit as a finalist in the industry category at the New Zealand Biosecurity Awards. The awards were established two years ago to recognise and celebrate exemplary contributions to protecting our taonga (precious natural resources) and ensuring New Zealand's biosecurity system remains resilient, effective, and world-leading.
