What was it all about?

Prevar™ is a joint venture company that has been established to provide an innovative and commercially sound vehicle for developing and globally commercialising new apple and pear products. The joint venture partners are Pipfruit New Zealand (PNZ), Apple & Pear Australia Limited (APAL), the Associated Group of International Nurseries (AIGN) and HortResearch New Zealand (HR).

Access to new apple and pear varieties is a key component for the ongoing vibrancy and development of the Australian and New Zealand pome fruit industries. Australian and New Zealand growers have a competitive advantage over elsewhere in the world as they have the opportunity for first access to all the products developed.
