The reputation and premium position held by New Zealand kiwifruit globally has been built on a platform of consistency in quality and the highest levels of compliance to international and customer standards. 

Packaging used with Zespri kiwifruit is critical to Zespri’s ability to deliver to its brand propositions, both due to the physical demands of the lengthy supply chain and more intangible elements such as commitment to good ethical practices, regulatory compliance, food safety regulations and robust traceability systems. Our registration process aims to ensure these standards are upheld.

All our registered packaging vendors provide products that have been tested to ensure they meet all food safety regulations, are fit for purpose, and will withstand our lengthy and rigorous supply chain.
