NZ Feijoa Growers Association members are proud of the product they grow and market. The Association is this year starting a progrgramme which identifies growers who have agreed to produce their fruit to the highest quality level.
This level has been set out in the NZFGA grade standards and includes quality controlled touch picking, handling and grading standards, storage and transport standards. Fruit from these growers will therefore arrive in the marketer at this standard. from there it is the marketer's and the retailer's responsibility to store and handle the fruit with utmost care.
If fruit supplied to you arrives in damaged condition, please in the first instant contact the marketer you purchased the fruit from and in the second instant the grower providing you with their fruit.
