Kiwiberry GIA application submitted to Minister

14 January 2016

NZ Kiwiberry Growers Inc (NZKBG) and KVH have jointly submitted an application to the Minister for Primary Industries for NZ Kiwiberry Growers to join Government Industry Agreements (GIA) and be represented by KVH in GIA decision making.

New Zealand kiwiberry growers voted in support of this arrangement and how they will fund their GIA commitments in 2014.

The new arrangement is fully supported by both KVH and NZKBG, and recognises both the commonality of biosecurity issues (across Actinidia spp.) and close existing relationships and association between kiwiberry and kiwifruit growers and industries.
