CVT - Cyclone Gabrielle

Thursday 16th February 2023

Text too small?

Our thoughts are with everyone across New Zealand impacted by Cyclone Gabrielle, but especially our team in the Hawkes Bay region. We are pleased to report that the team and their families are safe and well.

Naturally, our priority is ensuring the ongoing safety of our team and putting in place immediate and specific support for the Hawkes Bay team, as a number have been evacuated from their homes after suffering from significant flooding.


Our own Hawkes Bay facility (where we have a team of 13, an Apiary branch and an extraction facility) was also evacuated due to rising flood water and remains inaccessible at this time.


From an operational perspective we have moved extraction facilities to an alternative Comvita site where the team are ensuring that effective operations are continuing.


We will provide further updates in due course.


Comvita’s interim results will be announced on Thursday 23rd February.
