Up to Eighteen growers are elected or appointed to an advisory forum, to represent all major growing regions and grower groups. EastPack Forum meetings are held approximately every two months. The advisors receive full financial reports and discuss, formulate and recommend pool policy, as well as other grower services.
A contract has been established between EET and EastPack outlining, in precise detail, the payment of services that EastPack carries out on behalf of EET and its growers (coolstorage, condition checking etc).
EastPack is only paid time service and base charges for trays that are shipped. This ensures a management focus on inventory management and storage. This focus enables the business to minimise fruit loss, capitalise on storage payments and maximise grower returns.
The current chairman of the EastPack Entity Trust Forum is Paul Edkins.
