Market garden produce transport firm closes

8:01 am on 1 June 2013

A fresh produce transport firm has closed with the loss of 85 jobs.

Brenics Transport operated from Auckland to Invercargill solely for the produce industry, with several depots around the country.

Owner Mario Di Leva said he was forced to close the business on Friday due to continuing cost pressures in the industry.

Although 85 employees are affected by the closure, he said 60 have found new jobs.
