Seeka and Splice Fruit to oppose Zespri appeal

Seeka and Splice Fruit to oppose Zespri appeal against High Court collaborative marketing decision

Te Puke, June 14 - Seeka Kiwifruit Industries (NZX:SEK) and Splice Fruit announced today they would be opposing Zespri Group’s Notice of Appeal against parts of a recent High Court judicial review decision on collaborative marketing.

The High Court, in a fast track judicial review decision dated 3 May, overturned decisions by regulator Kiwifruit New Zealand to reject three proposed collaborative marketing agreement applications submitted by Seeka and Splice Fruit late last year. The High Court ordered Kiwifruit NZ to rehear the three applications. After the rehearing, Kiwifruit NZ again rejected the applications.

Zespri Group on 30 May filed a Notice of Appeal in the Court of Appeal in relation to parts of the High Court decision.

“We have filed notice that we will oppose Zespri’s Notice of Appeal,” said Seeka chief executive Michael Franks.

“We are looking to cooperate with Zespri to get through this legal process as efficiently as possible,” he said.
