The first shipment of new season kiwifruit has left New Zealand bound for Japan.
The ship called the Baltic Pearl, was carrying just over one million trays of sungold kiwifruit when it left Tauranga.
The ship is scheduled to reach Japan’s Tokyo and Kobe in late March.
The vessel also visited Gisborne to pick up over 330,000 trays of sungold kiwifruit.
New Zealand is expected to supply around 155 million trays, or around 600,000 tonnes, of Zespri kiwifruit to our consumers across the world. This will include around 80 million trays of sungold and around 70 million trays of traditional green.
