In 2013, the Chinese dairy market "exploded" for New Zealand due to a suspected microbial contamination in dairy from New Zealand. This food safety scandal did not stay confined to the dairy industry but had far-reaching consequences for the entire agricultural industry, horticulture included. Dr. Hans Maurer, member of the board of United Fresh New Zealand, an industry expert in the area of food safety & biosecurity, introduces us to the impact which this dairy crisis had on the government and on the cultivation of and trade in fresh fruit and vegetables.
