Federated Farmers welcomes Bee Industry Unification
Federated Farmers welcomes the announcement that the outcome of the National Beekeepers Association (NBA) special vote is positive.
The positive vote for change means the NBA will become Apiculture New Zealand as of 1 April 2016.
Members of the NBA voted for 58.63 per cent in favour which indicates a continuation of support for unification, creating a single and effective industry body.
Federated Farmers Bee Industry Group Chairperson John Hartnell says the positive vote is a huge sense of relief.
"This is a milestone event in the apiculture industries history. The positive vote of support from the NBA membership reaffirms what the entire industry has been advocating for since the Apiculture Conference in 2014."
"We’re encouraging all Federated Farmers Bee Industry Group members to join the new entity when it is open for business, we now must all come together as one to advocate for the future of the apiculture industry" says Mr Hartnell.
