Those involved in the New Zealand walnut industry have an opportunity to be part of an exciting new venture. The processing and marketing company A Cracker of a Nut is to be sold. Interested parties in the NZ walnut industry are working together to ensure the long-term viability of the industry by establishing a company to be responsible for processing and marketing into the future.

Suppliers of A Cracker of a Nut were invited to a general meeting where the options were presented and a transitional board elected.

The board was charged with the following –

  • commission/undertake the establishment of a legal and capital structure,
  • negotiate the purchase of A Cracker of a Nut,
  • prepare a prospectus for investment in the new company or co-operative,
  • seek sector investment, and
  • arrange for the election of a new board to take control by 28 February 2016.

Other responsibilities implied in this are to employ appropriate staff to manage the company and exercise governance responsibility for the company on behalf of shareholders until the election of a new board.

The transitional board will also consider conditions of supply for those who do not wish to invest in the company.

  1. Good Morning,
    I am writing from the Alicetown Community Centre. We are in fear of closing if we cannot make some money so we are holding a quiz night fundraiser at the end of August. We are hoping that you will be able to help us out by donating a voucher or product that we can use in our auction or in a raffle on the evening. We are very happy to put fliers on the tables as well as thank you on the evening and in our local newsletter. We really appreciate you taking the time to consider our request.
    Kind Regards, Karyn Wick, Manager, Alicetown Community Centre, 38 Victoria Street, Alicetown, Lower Hutt
