"Kiwifruit Investments were thorough, concise and kind in their communication. From the moment I walked into their offices I was greeted with kindness and care. The training was informative and engaging whilst communicating their care for their staff. I would like to recommend and commend Kiwifruit Investments for what they have set up in the form of a working environment that knows the importance of exhibiting kindness while maintaining high quality standards in the Kiwifruit industry.
