Weights & Measures

In response to member requests, United Fresh has begun consultation with Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) to clarify the requirements and responsibilities of different business types through the produce supply chain, particularly as it relates to prefaced produce.

An initial meeting was held with MBIE, attended by United Fresh representatives, Jerry Prendergast, Anne-Marie Arts and representatives from Foodstuffs, T&G Global and MG Marketing.

United Fresh is committed to taking industry ownership of weights & measures issues and to developing a guidance document. MBIE will support the process with technical assistance.
