This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order, which comes into force on 20 December 2010, imposes a levy on all chicken eggs produced in New Zealand for sale. The levy is payable to the Egg Producers Federation of New Zealand (Incorporated) (the Federation). A producer is primarily responsible for paying the levy. However, a hatchery that sells chicks to a producer must pay the levy to the Federation and recover it from the producer. If the hatchery cannot recover the levy from the producer, the Federation must waive the levy payment.
This order replaces the Commodity Levies (Eggs) Order 2004, which expires on 19 December 2010.
Unless earlier revoked, this order will expire 6 years after it was made.
