Responding to criticism and government claims that its proposed levy to pay off outstanding debts is an unpopular move, apple and pear marketer Enza has revealed the results of an internal poll to prove that it has the support of nearly 70% of its growers. Enza, which is set to renounce its practical monopoly on apple and pear exporting on 1 October, revealed that its fruit growers could expect to pick up the tab for its NZ$54 m (US$22m) foreign exchange losses. Payment options involved paying a NZ$4.5 levy on every carton produced this year, or growers may find themselves paying a NZ80c levy on every carton produced over the next five seasons.
