Potatoes NZ is a pan industry organisation with members coming from within the wider potato industry.

Grower members provide funding via a levy paid by all potato growers (a small percentage on value of potatoes at first point of sale), collected under the Commodity Levies Act. That levy – charged according to how much a grower produces.
