Our ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT is aS
IMPORTANT TO US AS OUR fruit is
Maungatapere Berries are working hard to ensure that we grow and pack our berries with the smallest possible environmental impact. There are a number of ways in which we are doing this.
Our fresh packaging is made from 100% recycled plastic, made right here in NZ, that can then be recycled over and over again.
We use as few sprays as possible on our berryfruit. We try to use natural, organic, biological or creative controls in order to deal with insect, pest or diseases, and we choose to use organic/biologically approved sprays when the plants are producing fruit, and only use conventional sprays when the plants are out of production.
