The 2017 AGM was held at the Emerald Hotel in Gisborne on 20 February.
It is an opportunity to look back on what has been achieved over the last year, and to appreciate is always interesting to look back over the year and review the work that is undertaken.
Market development remains a major use of our resource, with the China market opening up, and the application for access to the USA making good progress over the last year.
Activities are funded largely by levy, which remains at 7 c/ kg.
The meeting continued on the next day with visits to NZ Fruits, the industry’s largest packhouse, and one of the local export orchards.
Commercial growers who would like to be part of these activities can contact PIC through this website.
