a note from Todd

 
‘We are looking forward to the start of the 2016 feijoa season. We have been planning ahead for sometime and feel we are well prepared. Our new Zeijoa branding has been developed with export feijoa sales in mind.
If any avocado growers would like to discuss options for Pole to Pole to export your avocados please make contact with myself or Jim. We are now planning ahead for the 2016 / 2017 avocado export season and would like to talk to avocado growers about our export plans.’
