Ensure you have a current CAV for the 2019 harvest

If you intend to work as a harvest contractor you must have a current CAV before commencing work. Zespri will be undertaking to check this during harvest and will take appropriate action where contractors are found to be working who do not meet this requirement.  This can include exclusion from working in the kiwifruit industry and penalties to those who have contracted you to work on their orchards.
