In the partnership, Hazel Tech is joining with New Zealand kiwifruit packers Seeka and Apata, according to a news release.
The partnership focuses on the use of Hazel Trex, a pre-harvest technology launched by Hazel Tech this year, with support from New Zealand kiwifruit marketer Zespri, according to the release.
Growers supplying fruit to Seeka and Apata will use Hazel Trex in pre-harvest management ahead of the 2020-21 harvest, according to the release.
Both Seeka and Apata pack the Zespri kiwifruit export label, and the release said Farmlands will be the sole distributor of Hazel Trex to all of Zespri’s New Zealand kiwifruit growers.
“Hazel Tech is committed to expanding our current industry-leading technology portfolio across the global supply chain,” Aidan Mouat, CEO of Hazel Technologies, said in the release.
