Banking update

As per the updated industry strategy, there is an immediate need to get accurate messaging and informed data to banks to provide a factual lens towards their avocado lending policies.

NZAGA Directors alongside the NZAGA CEO have begun that process by connecting in person with a number of the main banks to present on the current state of the industry giving context to the significant impacts of the last two years environmental events and a view into the future on viability. This work continues as we work to connect with all main agri banking teams.

We welcome feedback on the document as this is being constantly updated as we learn what resonates with agri lenders while also wanting it to be a useful document for growers as they discuss their individual situation with lenders.
