Pipfruit Growers Pleased With Support For Changes


PGNZI is immensely pleased with the level of grower support for the proposed restructuring of the apple and pear industry. More than 750 growers have attended meetings over the last four days and have given overwhelming support for the proposed package.

"The strength of the proposal lies in its ability to deliver to growers on four key principals;

1) Clear grower ownership of the assets of the present NZAPMB.

2) Retention of single desk marketing.

3) Control of the industry in grower hands.

4) Commercially robust structures for the commercial business,


"PGNZI looks forward to the introduction of the proposed Bill and its speedy passage through the Parliamentary process. Its passing will ensure the industry is able to look to the future in a positive and cohesive manner."
