What is the New Zealand Blackcurrant Co-operative?
The New Zealand Blackcurrant Co-operative is an association that is involved in the production, management, sales and marketing of Cassis fruit for the New Zealand Cassis industry. Members of the Co-operative are growers of New Zealand Cassis.
The Co-operative manages the fruit immediately after harvesting by its members. The Co-operative then processes the fruit to frozen fruit, fruit juice concentrate, puree and powder, which it then sells to others to manufacture finished products such as jams, juices, supplements or other items as retail products.
