Strawberry and Raspberry picking.
A number of tasks involve manual work including lifting, bending and twisting so workers need to be fit and healthy as well as have a positive attitude. Most of the work is undertaken in supervised teams or groups.
Our polytunnels also create a more pleasant working environment. Being undercover protects our workers from the weather elements, and we grow on tables so we don’t have work at ground-level.
To pick / pack berries into punnets, then checked weighed and lidded to the quality and quantity standards set.
A number of jobs, including picking, are paid on an hourly rate. Quality is very important at Kaipaki Berries and we have company targets. We also set a target for the quantity of berries picked per hour, which counts towards a picking bonus incentive.
As fruit needs to be picked in the cooler part of the day, work will often start early in the morning. We usually harvest seven days a week, but this does vary depending on the weather, crop timing, and market demand.

The Kaipaki Berries story starts with innovation. We have drawn on our experience in growing to develop a modern berry farm that uses specific growing techniques to protect the berries, extend our growing season and produce the best quality berries.
Our fully covered berry growing operation is based in the Waikato region and covers over 16 hectares. We are currently growing strawberries and raspberries and will add blackberries in the future.
Our team are 100% committed to producing berries that Kiwis love. We also take extra care to pick and pack our products in the field which reduces handling and helps us get premium grade berries to stores and produce markets.
