Hill News November 2023 - Update From Our CEO, Dr Jonno Hill

The cliché “change is the only constant” is as true now as it’s ever been. Within our changing climate, we have apparently just kicked over from La Nina to El Nino, which is likely to lead to more rain on the west coast and more drought on the east. Hats off to our farmers, who must do the best they can within unpredictable and sometimes severe weather events.

Our Dedicated Beverage Testing Lab

In the heart of Marlborough, we have a dedicated beverage testing laboratory with local knowledgeable staff and precision equipment. Leading the charge in supporting the beverage industry is Vanessa Burrows - our Blenheim Site and Key Account Manager - who is backed by an experienced team that have built an extensive network of clients across New Zealand.

PCR Testing with Hill Labs

We understand that providing results in the shortest time possible is imperative for our customers - that’s why we have a strong focus on innovation and advancing our services to meet the needs of the food and beverage market. We are constantly evaluating our processes to ensure our value offering is ahead of the game.

Embracing Digital Integration with Bee Intelligence's BeeApp

We are thrilled to announce that full BeeApp integration is now live. In today's fast-paced and increasingly digital world, efficient inventory management is crucial for businesses in various industries. This is particularly true for the honey sector, where maintaining the quality and market compliance holds paramount importance.

Changing of the Guard

There are many things that have contributed to the success of Hill Labs over the years, with one of the most important being the commitment of our people to do a great job for our customers. Many of you will be familiar with Fiona Calvert and the fantastic leadership she has delivered in her role as Market Sector Manager - Agriculture over the past seven years.
