For ZESPRI, delivering wealth to our growers and shareholders isn’t just about money. It’s also about investing in the future of our industry by fostering the education of our young people and our industry’s future leaders, and enriching the lives of people within the communities where we live, work and play.
ZESPRI sponsors a number of initiatives in the areas of health and nutrition, innovation, leadership and environmental performance with a focus on initiatives which:
- Increase awareness of ZESPRI® Kiwifruit and its significant health benefits within our target audience;
- Increase awareness of ZESPRI and the kiwifruit industry as innovative and highly successful;
- Attract young people into our industry and advance the careers of our future industry leaders;
- Promote and encourage innovation and sustainability.
While ZESPRI focuses on a small number of initiatives, we’re happy to consider requests for funding as long as they fit into one of the areas listed above. Please note that it’s highly unlikely that ZESPRI will sponsor individuals, sports teams, hobby or personal interest groups, religious causes or political causes.
