What is the EMS?
The Export Marketing Strategy (EMS) is a document which details the obligations of growers, packers and exporters who are operating to export avocados from New Zealand. The existence of the document is a requirement of being a recognised product group (in the avocado industry’s case, the NZ Avocado Industry Limited) under the Horticultural Export Authority Act 1987 (HEA).
The Horticulture Export Authority Act is in place to ‘promote the effective export marketing of horticultural products.’
