Tauranga: Whetu Rolleston


Nei rā ngā mihi manahau ki a tātou katoa

I was introduced to the kiwifruit industry in the mid-1980s.  Aged 10 I donned a picking bag alongside whanau for the first crop harvest.  I have vivid and happy memories of these harvests during a time of immense optimism and industry growth.

The industry has come a long way since then and I am mindful and appreciative of the pivotal role NZKGI has and continues to play in advocating a grower-led industry.  I am thankful for the opportunity to make a contribution as a Tauranga regional representative and I look forward to engaging with growers whenever and wherever the opportunity arises.
