Organisation of the Vegetable Industry

The New Zealand Vegetable Produce Growers' Federation, the national organisation, is supported by a levy on produce sold at auction or to processing firms. This is collected under the terms of the Vegetable Levy Act 1957. District associations of growers are organised into two groups within the federation, one serving the interests of market-vegetable growers and the other being concerned with the process-vegetable growers.
