The 25th Annual General Meeting of Summerfruit New Zealand was held on Monday, 5 August in Wellington. In addition to the Board and staff, 13 producer members and one exporter attended the meeting and were addressed by chairman Tim Jones.
Tim spoke about the four major challenges facing Summerfruit NZ, and identified the renewal of the commodity levy as the single biggest issue facing Summerfruit NZ at this time. He also spoke about the planned independent industry review, which will get underway as soon as feasible. It is the Board's expectation that the industry review will be completed prior to the next AGM in May 2020.
Once the draft AGM minutes have been considered by the Board at their meeting on 21 August, they will be uploaded to the website. A note in Prunings will advise when they are available.
