Get­ting it sorted

Good - - GOOD + DOLE -

Dolores Ber­dad, 47, has worked for Dole as a fruit packer for 19 years. The se­cu­rity of her job has en­abled her to send her kids to school and buy her own house. When pre­par­ing the pineap­ples for the NZ mar­ket it is im­por­tant that cer­tain pro­ce­dures are fol­lowed. “We know if the fruit is in­tended for NZ when; first, the crown is re­moved pre­cisely (pineap­ple crowns are re­moved to com­ply with biose­cu­rity reg­u­la­tions in NZ). There should be no in­sects found in the fruit,” says Ber­dad.
