Mr Apple is the biggest apple marketer in Hawke’s Bay, producing and exporting 25% of the New Zealand apple crop. They manage 53 Global-Gap accredited orchards, on over 1,000 hectares of Hawke’s Bay land. They apply cutting edge science and technology to growing, harvesting, grading, packing and storing apples, to maximise product quality and shelf life.
We will be hosted by Packhouse Logistics & Production Planning Manager Rob Sykes and packhouse staff, for a presentation on the business and a packhouse tour. We’ll learn about the application of science, technology and engineering in the business.
