Seeka’s grower reporting team, under management of Geoff Carey, provides detailed individual financial forecasts and payment schedule updated with each new Zespri forecast. Seeka is committed to processing and depositing payments direct to grower accounts within 24 hours.
Individual financial forecasts are generated per maturity area along with a consolidated orchard report so orchardists can understand how each area contributes to total orchard returns.
Seeka’s regular Dollars and Sense newsletter keeps orchard owners fully informed of financial issues throughout the payment season, including payments to date and the forecast payment schedule. These are posted out with payment advices and also available to registered Seeka growers online.
At end of season, Seeka delivers orchardists a fully-audited set of accounts detailing all fruit payments. Further financial and operational analysis is presented at the annual meeting of Seeka Growers Limited.
A series of grower roadshows, including pre-season and post-season season meetings, are held to keep orchardists informed of operational and financial issues, with Seeka publishing pre-season a reasoned orchard gate returns forecast to aid grower financial planning.
