Start Afresh is once again offering training opportunities for the Kiwifruit postharvest sector. Since 2016, over 450 people have attended Start Afresh training courses designed to improve understanding in the industry and ultimately improve quality outcomes for the industry.
Back again this year by popular demand. Start Afresh in conjunction with Massey University, have developed a 1.5-day course on the storage and handling of kiwifruit (this was originally packed into 1 day, but feedback has suggested we slow down a bit and present over more than 1 day, and include a field trip).
This mid-level course covers basic physiology, principles of storage and inventory management and important principles that will improve understanding and assist in getting the most out of staff that deal with kiwifruit from harvest to storage.
This course would be suited to quality staff in the packhouse, coolstore staff, or those interacting with the industry and wanting a solid understanding of kiwifruit and what affects it’s longevity in storage. This course is co-branded with Massey University.
