NZKGI Levy Proposal

(Notification from 2017)

The Kiwifruit Commodity Levy Order is the funding mechanism for NZKGI and needs to be renewed in 2017. In December of 2016, all growers received a document outlining what the levy proposal is about so that you could provide us with any feedback that you may have.

Following consultation with growers, voting on the Commodity Referendum ran from 24 February until midday on 17 March. The proposed levy is to continue to fund the activities of NZKGI.

The Minister for Primary Industries will need to see a clear indication of grower support in order to approve a new levy order that will enable this important funding for our industry to continue.
