Te Wahi Ao, a subsidiary of kiwifruit company Te Awanui Global Pak, has partnered with Waikato-based biotech company Ligar to start harvesting bio-actives for nutraceuticals from the company’s kiwifruit and avocado waste streams. Ligar chief executive Nigel Slaughter says their technology has enabled a broader range with nutraceutical properties to be extracted, developed and commercialized. The businesses aim to construct a refinery in Bay of Plenty capable of using kiwifruit and avocado waste streams, with supply buoyed by Seeka.
