For almost quarter of a century, NZKGI has been the voice for New Zealand’s kiwifruit growers, helping to make key decisions within the industry and acting as an advocate for the industry at government level.

Incentives & Payments

In order to produce the fruit the market demands, there are incentives in place for growers, which are laid out in the Zespri Grower Payment Booklet. The booklet provides information on the process, calculation and timing of the Zespri Grower Payments for the 2016 season.

NZKGI aims to ensure that growers’ understand what those incentives are and that there is research in place for growers to be able to achieve these incentives. NZKGI works to ensure that market returns are distributed fairly, rewarding those growers who are producing the fruit that the market demands.
