The Hop Marketing Committee, a grower committee with State representation, controls the sale of all hops. This Committee acts under the statutory authority of the Hop Marketing Regulations. One business firm in Nelson is the broker for hops. The representatives of New Zealand Breweries inspect samples and select their needs. The surplus is available for export. Under the regulations New Zealand's needs must be met before any export can be made. No imports are allowed while New Zealand hops are available.
