Export systems fee
An Export Systems Fee is charged to deliver the strategy set out in the Export Marketing Strategy, the EMS.
The Export Marketing Strategy is approved annually by the NZAIL Board and the Horticulture Export Authority.
The levies and fees for the season are set out in the EMS in section 3.7 Funding.
The Export systems fee is collected per tray exported and is deducted by your exporter from your grower return and forwarded to NZ Avocado Industry Ltd monthly.
Growers agree to abide by the rules set out in the EMS when they sign their packer and export contracts. The Export Systems Fee is reported annually to growers at a AGM.
