Motion 4 That the 2021 year levy rate for the purposes of the Commodity Levies (Vegetables and Fruit) Order 2019 remain and be set for domestic sales at 0.14% of the price received at the first point of sale, for export sales remain and be set at 0.14% of the price received after the deduction of all offshore costs and for processed sales remain and be set at 0.14% of the notional process value.

Proposed by the HortNZ Board

Explanatory Note
The Commodity Levies (Vegetables and Fruit) Order 2019 allows a maximum rate to be set for vegetables and fruit at 0.15% for domestic sales and processed sales taken at the first point of sale and at 0.15% for export sales at the first point of sale after all offshore costs (including international freight) have been deducted. For processed vegetables and fruit the levy is deducted from the notional process value, which is defined in the Order. At the AGM levy paying growers may set any rate up to the maximum for the next calendar year. The current rate for vegetables and fruit is 0.14%. This levy funds the activities of HortNZ. The Board recommends that the levy rate be set and remain at 0.14% for the 2021 year to meet the commitments identified in HortNZ’s Budget.

 


That there be no change to the directors’ remuneration for the 2020/2021 year.

Explanatory Note:
The HortNZ Directors requested a 20% reduction to their fees for six months from 1 July 2020 to December 2020. The Directors also requested their remuneration be held at the current rate for this financial year. Therefore, no change to the directors’ remuneration is being proposed and there is no motion.

 


Motion 5   That the Budget for the year ended 31 March 2021 be endorsed.
