Performance / Gold Organic Pooling review

Gold Organic Pooling review

Every year Zespri reviews the Gold Organic Premium and Pooling arrangement, a process that has been followed since the creation of the Gold varieties pool in 2007. In 2019, Zespri held a consultation with SunGold Organic growers on moving to a separate pool. Feedback received indicated a view that moving to an own pool was inevitable, however preference was to wait for larger volumes to mitigate the impact of small changes in market/profile mix. The Zespri Board were guided by growers and supported continuing the combined pool structure, indicating when volumes reach 2M trays would be an appropriate point to create a separate pool. Zespris 5 year plan indicates SunGold Organic volumes will reach 1.6M TE in 2020, and 2.4M TE in 2021.
