Commodity Levy Order for Apples and Pears

Posted By HBFA | February 22, 2024

NZAPI will be engaging with growers around the country in March as part of the consultative process for the renewal of the Commodity Levies (Apples and Pears) Order.

Every six years, NZAPI is required to renew their legal status as the levy collector for apples and pears in New Zealand. It was last renewed in 2018 and is therefore due for renewal in 2024. The commodity levy order sets the role of NZAPI and the maximum levy amount. All growers are required to pay the levy, which is primarily used by NZAPI to fund the support and services it provides as the industry body.

While the Commodity Levy Order is a piece of very important legislation for the industry, more importantly it is what brings us together as an industry, formalising how we work together, and how we provide services and support to growers. Because of this, it is critical that growers are part of the renewal process.

Meetings with growers will be held in early March to engage and consult on the Levy Order. Acknowledging this is a busy time of year for growers, NZAPI are combining their levy order consultation meetings with an update on the recent strategic review, and an online meeting will also be held.
