GIA Deed Update - 2014

Thank you to everyone who took part in the GIA Deed survey. We received an excellent response with 95% of producers who responded supporting NZPork signing the GIA Deed. The next step is to take the results to the Minister and, with his approval, sign the Deed.

No funding agreement will be entered into without extensive industry consultation. 

You will find more information about the GIA and FAQs here.
