Stop the waste

Here at KLIMA we are committed to helping grape growers do more with less

Our view is that the world’s very best producers are always looking at ways to minimise wasteful annual operational costs while maintaining or increasing the product quality to their customers.  This is the foundation of why they are successful.

So how can we as grape growers remove waste from the operating costs in our businesses without compromising grape and wine quality?

A useful way to look at things is this:

Anything that costs you money and or time to run your vineyard every year (operating costs) that your customer doesn’t pay you a premium for is simply waste.

So if you are like other top grape growers around the world you will want to find ways identify and remove waste from your vineyard business.

Here are some examples to get you thinking the right way:

  • Does your customer pay you a premium for taking an extra 2 minutes to open the gate that you haven’t got around to fixing?
  • Does your customer pay you a premium to fix the irrigation laterals that pop off the T’s in your vineyard because you “can’t afford” new ones?
  • Does your customer pay you a premium for managing the canopy on those annoying short rows?
  • Does your customer pay you a premium for replacing broken posts every year?
PS don’t get too hung up on solving these right away, just focus on identifying the waste in your business and where it hides. You’ll be surprised what you think of. – Good luck.

When you purchase a KLIMA product you can be sure that our dedicated team has used this very same thought process to develop our range of innovative vineyard machinery and trellising products. Click here to see KLIMA’s range of waste removing vineyard products
