Vegetables NZ - in conjunction with other vegetable product groups and HortNZ - is hosting a series of grower meetings between February and May, to discuss the commodity levy process, answer questions and seek grower support. 

Most of Vegetables NZ's catch ups with growers about the levy are part of the Research Workshops that were already scheduled. To RSVP to a Research Workshop, please use this form
