A group of 10 Cedenco Staff, 2 staff from Paroa Station and 2 staff from Hauiti Station completed day one of fencing off the banks of the Uawa estuary. 1100 metres of fencing will be erected as a first step in the creation of a Uawa estuary natural riparian buffer zone. This buffer zone will eventually increase natural habitat and reduce the negative impacts of agriculture on the estuary’s ecosystem.
Cedenco has been declared a sustainable processor of onions, pumpkin, sweet corn and tomato under the Unilever Sustainable Agriculture Code (SAC).
Since 2008 Cedenco has been taking part in the Keep Gisborne Beautiful “Adopt A Highway” scheme and keeping this particular beachfront stretch of main highway clean and tidy. A willing team of staff are inducted prior to each cleanup with the hazards of working on a busy main highway explained.
