HortNZ Annual Report for 2022/23
The financial year to 31 March 2023 was a challenging one for the commercial fruit and vegetable growing industry. Growers experienced rising production costs due to Covid-related shortages as well as a shortage of labour.
Cyclone Gabrielle topped off the year, which was plagued by several other adverse weather events. As a result, many growers are uncertain about the future.
Our Annual Report for 2022/23 provides a summary of the horticulture industry’s experience over the last, very challenging twelve months.
