The results of the referendum are in and it's great news for the industry! Out of a total of 71 votes received, 70 votes were in support of the amendment. That number of votes amounts to a turnout of 31% of growers who could vote – and is higher than the Commodity Levy vote, which is usually around 25-27%.
The total value of the votes cast was $63,150,000 which represents 45% of the value of the industry last season.
