Increased rebate for DMS’ growers

Increased rebate for DMS’ growers

Bay of Plenty Kiwifruit management company, DMS, has announced it has increased its shareholder rebate for the 2015/2016 year by 10 cents to 30 cents for Grower shareholders, an increase that is attributed to increased profitability of the business.

DMS is a Bay of Plenty owned and operated orchard management and post-harvest operator, with two major packhouse sites in Te Puke and Te Puna.

DMS Director, Craig Greenlees, says the rebate increase demonstrates the recent growth enjoyed by DMS, plus implementing strategies that focuses on fruit quality from orchard management to packing.

“We pride ourselves on treating a Grower’s crop like Gold, regardless of the variety, and this increased shareholder rebate is proof of that,” he says.

“By putting in place good orchard management processes, picking the fruit at the best time and then treating the Kiwifruit with care in our packhouses, DMS can hand on heart say we mean what we say, and we deliver on that. Our mantra is “Increasing Grower Profit”.

“Growers have confidence in DMS. They have given us a clear message in the past over how they want to be treated and their expectations over what should be delivered. This is evidence that we have listened.

“Our company vision is to enrich the lives of our Growers and our team, through exceptional management and performance, and living up to our brand promise of increasing grower profit. I’m pleased that we have ticked that box.”
