Apple Commission Vote Launched

The BCFGA Fruit Growers’ Association (BCFGA) has initiated a grower vote on an Apple Commission to help industry act collectively on research and promotion projects.  If approved, the “Apple Research and Promotion Agency”, or ARPA, will collect a levy from all apple producers with over 2 acres of apples and direct the levy to research and promotion projects.  Additional funding will come from matching government research and promotion programs, the Scientific Research and Experimental Development tax credit, and a proposed levy on apple imports to Canada.

For additional information, access the full press release, which includes a link to an information website on the proposal.
