New Zealand Apples and Pears Inc (NZAPI), the representative industry body for the apple, pear and nashi industry reported the highest ever total export returns of $870m for the year ending March 2020 (pre-Covid), which is a $500m increase form the past 8 years largely driven by value rather than volume. NZAPI chief executive Alan Pollard says the industry is well placed to reach its $1b target by 2022 and $2b by 2030, and the focus for next year will be the rebuild and recovery post-Covid.
