New Zealand’s Food Story: The Pukekohe Hub - 15 August 2018

Our United Fresh President Jerry Prendergast and General Manager Paula Dudley attended the Horticulture New Zealand launch of a Deloitte report on New Zealand’s Food Story – The Pukekohe Hub. The Honourable Damien O’Connor, Minister of Agriculture, Biosecurity, Food Safety, and Rural Communities hosted the event at Parliament and gave the report his 100% support.

Pukekohe uses 3.8% of New Zealand’s land for fruit and vegetable production and produces an amazing 26% of New Zealand’s value of production (revenue) of vegetables, and to a lesser extent fruit - by value, $327 million.
