WE ARE HORTWORK, A COMPANY WITH THE VISION OF STRENGTHENING NEW ZEALAND'S HORTICULTURE INDUSTRY.
The horticulture industry in New Zealand is one of the largest in the country, being worth over $8.8 billion NZ Dollars annually and employing over 60,000 people. However, the number of people involved is not enough to supply the seasonal demand generated every year and many employment vacancies can't be filled.
According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation, about 10% of all people in the world are suffering from chronic undernourishment from not having enough food. Horticulture is all about growing food, and we cannot ignore the fact that an industry that doesn't have enough workforce to operate at 100% of its potential has an increased volume of wasted produce. Fruits and vegetables are not being picked due to the lack of workforce and end-up going in bins.
That's what motivated us to create this platform, to let people know about the horticulture industry in New Zealand and to connect people Interested in working with growers and contractors needing to increase their workforce to fill currently open positions.
WE BELIEVE IN HELPING PEOPLE.
To help by enabling workers to find jobs they love doing, by helping companies to increase their results, or simply by enabling more people to have everyday access to food all around the world.
