Fired Up and Ready to Go

Thank you for your continued support through the Annus Horribilis 2023. It was tough and for sure we will all face many more challenges in future. Let’s just say yip, 2023 was very tough with the impacts for many lasting longer than just one season. We think about those that have paid the ultimate price and sadly have had to exit the industry.

To 2024, this looks solid with most crops reporting significantly higher fruit numbers. Our label production has hit the ground running with good volumes of labels in stock now, particularly early season apples. If you have not yet had a chance to advise us of your labelling needs for January and February, don’t worry, please get on the dog and bone as soon as you can and let our team know what you need.

Our technicians are completing their machine servicing, so everything is ready to go for you in the new season. We’d like to welcome several new customers to the Sinclair/Jenkins family in Central Otago, Christchurch and Mangaweka.

We’re all fired up and ready to go! We hope you all manage a few days off with family and friends over summer and all the very best for 2024. Thank you.
