Contractors

ALL CONTRACTORS AND SUBCONTRACTORS MUST HAVE A CURRENT COMPLIANCE ASSESSMENT VERIFICATION (CAV) BEFORE COMMENCING WORK ON-ORCHARD

A reminder to all Growers and Contractors with regards to requirements relating to GAP and GRASP and the need to hold a current CAV prior to commencement of work on-orchard.

    • All contractors are required to be registered with Zespri and can do so on-line at www.industry.zespri.com   
    • A list of Registered Contractors and their CAV Status is also available at this site.
    • All Growers are required to check that any Contractors or Subcontractors hold a current CAV prior to working on their orchards. 
    • All Growers must hold a copy of that CAV at all times.  This can be an electronic copy.

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.

To book an inspection Contractors can do so by contacting an Inspector listed below, and arranging an inspection time.
