INZ “disrupting” NZ’s food supply chain – ACT

22nd February 2021 By Staff Reporter | news@foodticker.co.nz | @foodtickernz

Immigration New Zealand is doing more harm than good when it comes to the horticulture sector and the Recognised Seasonal Employer scheme, according to the ACT Party.

“A completely inflexible Immigration New Zealand seems hell-bent on disrupting New Zealand’s food supply chain,” said ACT’s immigration spokesperson Dr James McDowall and primary industries spokesperson Mark Cameron.

“Sector by sector we can [see] disaster ahead, with the apple industry in crisis right now. Other vegetable growers are facing similar challenges and the berry and Kiwifruit growers are just around the corner.”
