Seeka is involved with innovation of the kiwiberry industry from the orchard gate right through to the marketplace. In order to maximise returns to growers and deliver high quality product to consumers, Seeka is increasing research into areas such as storage, post-harvest handling and growing techniques.
Seeka prides itself on its in-house engineering and design department – SeekaProtek’. This internal department enables Seeka to custom build equipment designed specifically for Seeka's operational needs.
In 2014 an innovative harvest system has been developed, involving harnessed picking containers that nest inside Seeka’s new Surestore bins. TCI New Zealand designed and built the containers with development input from Seeka.
Also, a modular, purpose built packing line has been designed and built by SeekaProtek and installed at the Oakside packing facility.
