Celebrating 20 Years

This year Zespri celebrates 20 years of deliciousness - yes, the Zespri brand turns 20!

To celebrate, we are hosting a week of industry events in the Bay of Plenty during March. ​Celebrate the New Zealand kiwifruit industry's outstanding achievement and be at the events to mark to occasion - see below for more details...

 

Pick Pack Scoop Challenge

Close your eyes, imagine you’re on an orchard, in a pack-house and then about to cut and eat a delicious kiwifruit, and record and share with us your very own ‘Pick Pack Scoop’ dance moves!

As part of our celebrations we would like to share the passion we all have for the kiwifruit industry by capturing some videos of us all – whether you are a customer, consumer, grower, supplier, or a staff member. So, we invite you to step up to the ‘Pick Pack Scoop Challenge’!

What is it about?

To inspire, we are pleased to share an instructional ‘Pick Pack Scoop’ video created by some of the Zespri Marketing team and our CEO Lain Jager. Check out their moves.... 

 

Your challenge?

Close your eyes, imagine you’re on an orchard, in a pack-house and then about to cut and eat a delicious kiwifruit, and record and share with us your very own ‘Pick Pack Scoop’ dance moves!

So, watch and share the instructional ‘Pick Pack Scoop’ video, then get creating your own. Get creative - you could film it with your colleagues at work, while you’re out in the orchard, at home with the family, with friends in the park, on your own while out surfing - you choose! Either email your video to corporate.communications@zespri.com or upload it directly to the Zespri dropbox here (no need for a password) by 24 February to be in with a chance to see it featured on our Facebook sites and at the Momentum Industry conference on Friday 10 March.

Let’s share the passion for Zespri Kiwifruit!
