Commodity Levy Referendums 2018
Growers we need your support
Fresh tomato growers will be asked to vote for the Fresh Tomato levy that funds Tomatoes New Zealand, and for the Horticulture New Zealand levy, later this year.
The commodity levy referendums will run from the 2nd July to the 13th August.
Tomatoes NZ and Horticulture New Zealand are based in the same Wellington office and work closely together to ensure we can achieve the maximum possible representation, advocacy and industry development for your levy.
We need your support in the referendum to ensure we can continue to do this work for you. For the levy to be approved, 50% of votes by number, and by value must be in favour. Growers will be asked to declare their sales value on the voting form, which will be available for completion online or by post, and handled by an independent returning office, Electionz.com
Onions NZ, Vegetables NZ, and Process Vegetables NZ work alongside us at the same location and we are in daily contact about the issues affecting growers. Those groups are also conducting their levy referendums in July-August.
