HOW IS NZCGI FUNDED?
To meet these objectives NZCGI is funded mainly through a compulsory levy on the sale of citrus fruit. The levy is calculated on the amount of fruit sold; these levies go directly to the relevant product group to fund research and development, administration, and other issues relevant to the group.
Those who have an interest in the industry (eg. orchard supply companies, packhouses, and scientists) may also join NZCGI by an annual subscription.
NZCGI’s membership rate is $115 incl GST for all (non-grower) industry members. Any grower who pays the compulsory levy on citrus is automatically deemed to be a member of NZCGI and so is not required to pay an annual membership subscription.
If you pay a levy, but do not receive the quarterly newsletter, please contact the NZCGI office and we will add you to our database.
