Structure of Vegetables New Zealand Inc.

Vegetables New Zealand Inc. has six Crop Advisory Groups: Allium crops, Brassica crops, Covered crops, Leafy crops, Root and tuber crops and Stalks, vines, bulbs and herb crops.

The members of the Crop Advisory Groups are directly elected by the growers within each of those groups. The Director of each of the Crop Advisory Groups sits on the Vegetables NZ Inc. Board. The Vegetables NZ Inc. Board also has an independent Chairman directly elected by all fresh vegetable growers.

Vegetables New Zealand Inc.'s mission is: "To be a strong, unified and well resourced professional fresh vegetable producer organisation giving positive leadership in all aspects of industry development and promoting opportunities to maximise returns to its members."

It aims to advance the interests of fresh vegetable growers by:

Being active as a political lobby group to Government, local bodies, and industry organisations to ensure growers' views are presented.

Promoting the consumption of quality fresh vegetables and their economic and health benefits to current and new markets.

Conducting research that provides relevant information on industry direction, trends, marketing mechanisms, performance, existing and future impediments, markets, and opportunities.
