MPI have set up a number of Workshops and Huis around New Zealand, and online, to discuss the proposed regulations on Organic businesses, which are as follows:
- proposed requirements and processes associated with the approval of organic businesses
- recognition of third-party agencies and persons that would check compliance
- use of a national mark for organic products
To find the dates and locations of the meetings, and to register, VISIT THIS PAGE
Details of these proposals are included on the web page and there is also a link to an online survey for feedback. MPI are taking submissions via the online form, by email, by post or in person up until 8th JUNE. Contact addresses for correspondence can be found on the web page.
We encourage all those who will be affected by these regulations to read the information carefully, attend a workshop if possible, and make a submission.
