Industry Stability / NZKGI Rate of Levy

NZKGI Rate of Levy

(Notification from December 2016)

NZKGI wishes to advise kiwifruit growers of the levy rate for the year 1 January 2017 to 31 December 2017.

Pursuant to section 16 of the Commodity Levies (Kiwifruit) Order 2012, all kiwifruit growers are advised that following approval by grower vote at the 2016 AGM, the levy rate for the year 1 January 2017 to 31 December 2017 will increase to 1 cent per tray (0.28 cents per kilogram). The levy order requires compulsory levies to be collected and paid on all kiwifruit grown in New Zealand that is exported to any place other than Australia.

Please note that this levy rate increase is occurring under the current levy order which expires in early 2018.  It is separate to the future levy proposal which NZKGI is currently consulting with growers on.

If you have any questions, please contact NZKGI, PO Box 4246, Mount Maunganui, New Zealand. Telephone: (07) 574 7139. Email:
