NZ: Turners & Growers to meet with Zespri

Radio New Zealand has reported that Turners & Growers is calling a truce with Zespri after aggressively campaigning to break the kiwifruit exporter's stranglehold on the offshore market.

The change of direction comes as Turners & Growers appoints a new senior management team, following a majority share buy out by German company BayWa.

The new chief executive, Geoff Hipkins, only took office officially on Tuesday, but has already arranged a meeting with Zespri to discuss an end to the ongoing battle over export rights.

Zespri says it welcomes Turners and Growers' new approach, which appears to be much more reasonable and pragmatic.

Mr Hipkins says the two companies need to work together.
