  • July to November we're repacking kiwifruit and making sure it's being stored for best results.
  • July to September is winter-pruning out in our kiwifruit orchards.
  • August to March we're packing avocados at DMS Te Puna.

We provide all PPE and on-the-job training for all seasonal jobs.
At our packhouses, we have onsite parking and canteens that provide a great variety of healthy food options at great prices.
