Overview

Kiwifruit season is our busiest period of the year requiring the largest number of staff. We hire approximately 1000 employees across all sites between March and June each year, then around 250 employees between September and February for the avocado season. We have about 150 permanent staff members throughout the whole year and recruit around 300 RSE workers from Malaysia, Fiji, Vanuatu and Thailand.
